We are quickly coming to the 150th Anniversary of this terrible and great battle of the U.S. Civil War called the Battle of Gettysburg. Here is an appropriate quote about the battle:
"In great deeds something abides. On great fields something stays. Forms change and pass; bodies disappear, but spirits linger, to consecrate ground for the vision-place of souls.” Colonel Joshua Lawrence Chamberlain, Speaking at the dedication of the Monument to the 20th Maine, October 3, 1889, Gettysburg, Pennsylvania.
