Last week at Pamplin Historical Park we poured a small base to support a new monument hewn from Vermont granite. It will commemorate the six men from the Green Mountain State who received the Medal of Honor for their actions on April 2, 1865 at Petersburg.
Looking at the blank concrete pad that will support the stone got me thinking… what would I would inscribe if given the opportunity to dedicate a monument? What about you, readers? What Civil War individual, group, or event that hasn’t been memorialized deserves a monument?
