June 23, 2020 "What Mean These Stones – The Wheatfield and Stony Hill“
LBG Rich Goedkoop
This program will be a walking tour of the Rose Wheatfield and Stony Hill looking at the significance of selected monuments, markers and plaques in one of the most heavily fought over areas of the July 2nd battlefield. We will look at the units, commanders, soldiers as well as their monuments and dedications to better understand the Battle and the Memorial period of the GNMP. This moderate walk of about 26 stops will cover around a mile and a half over occasionally uneven terrain.
