Wordless Wednesday: North Carolina Monument at Gettsyburg

The sculptor of the North Carolina State Monument at Gettysburg was Gutzon Borglum, best known today for Mt. Rushmore. The bronze casting for the monument was done in New York. North Carolina seceded from the Union on 20 May 1861, following Lincoln's request for troops to put down the rebellion. Up to 125,000 North Carolinians fought for the Confederacy, and they accounted for around a quarter of the Confederate losses during the war.




The idea for this post came from Geneabloggers.com.

Honor Roll Project: Frederick, Maryland

A Sunday drive to the quaint, historic city of Frederick, Maryland, included a lovely surprise -- the Memorial Grounds with several memorials to those men and women who served their country in time of war from the city and county of Frederick, Maryland.

Vietnam War

The Vietnam memorial was a striking monument with several tablets surrounding the shiny black obelisk.
