Bronze Book at the High Water Mark


Tucked close to the historic grove of trees that mark the furthest point penetrated by Pickett's charge, this oversized memorial records the names of both the Confederate and the Union units involved in the assaults that took place here. (A peek behind will reveal the clever source of the book's support: piles of cannonballs.)
As for the plaques: the one directly below the book names the fourteen states that contributed to the memorial, while those on the left and right sides of the base detail particular regiments. Yet another plaque on the back of the base, lists the Memorial Association members of 1895.
