Our Lives in Stasis

POD: Behind the trumpet

A memorial shot from the Gettysburg national memorial Park in Pennsylvania.  The memorial reads:

“This memorial was erected by the state of Louisiana to honor her sons who fought and died at Gettysburg July 1-2-3, 1863. In particular it memorializes the 2300 infantrymen of Hays and Nicholl’s Louisiana brigades, The cannoneers in the Washington Artillery of New Orleans, and those in The Louisiana Guard, Madison, and Donaldsonville Artillery Batteries.”
“This memorial is presented to the Gettysburg National Military Park by the State of Louisiana under the administration of the Honorable John J. McKeithen, Governor State of Louisiana, Honorable Lamar Gibson, Director Louisiana State Parks and Recreation Commission and the Gettysburg Memorial Commission”
