The Fiighting Irish

Tucked away in the woods of the Gettysburg Battlefield stands one of the most famous and well known monuments, it’s also a favorite to most visitors of the battlefield. The Irish Brigade Monument. It stands 19 feet and 6 inches tall with the prominent Celtic Cross perched atop the granite base.  At the foot of the Celtic Cross lies a life-size Irish Wolfhound, a symbol of honor and fidelity. This monument was sculpted by R. O’Donovan, a former Confederate soldier who fought at Gettysburg. The Monument was dedicated July 2, 1888.

This was captured on our trip earlier this month.

I hope everyone has a happy Thanksgiving, be safe and be happy!

Thanks for stopping!
