Subject: RE: G'burg monument

Message Detail:
Does anyone have any idea of what the monument is of a right arm raising a saber? It is on the south end of the field on Route 15.

Chuck,
The monument you are asking about is the 11th Massachusetts Infantry. It is on Emmittsburg Road, near the Peach Orchard. The arm and raised saber are incorporated into our State Seal and is also worn by members of the Army Reserve here in Massachusetts.
I hope this helps you. If you need any more information on the 11th Massachusetts Infantry, please contact me. I have the Roster and other information.
