The Line That Held (I)

I was in Gettysburg today for a meeting, and I had time afterward to revisit my favorite parts of the battlefield. Above, the view from the summit of Little Round Top, with the statue of Gouverneur Warren who organized its defense. Below, Confederate's eye view of the little ridge defended by the 20th Maine, with their monument to the right.

Stand firm ye boys from Maine, for not once in a century are men permitted to bear such responsibility for freedom and justice, for God and humanity as are now placed upon you.
