Here is a video of my son CJ teaching us about one of the more popular sites in Gettysburg, the Eternal Peace Light Memorial.  This monument is located on Oak Hill in Gettysburg.  Confederate forces marched toward Gettysburg and the Union lines from behind the monument where CJ is sitting.   The base relief is said to represent Peace and Good.

CJ is reading from THE COMPLETE GETTYSBURG GUIDE by JD Petruzzi
