ETERNAL LIGHT PEACE MEMORIAL - Located on the field of battle is this monumental emblem, symbolic of peace and union, dedicated by President Franklin D. Roosevelt at the 75th Anniversary of the Battle of Gettysburg, July, 1938. In anticipation of another upcoming September to Remember gathering at Gettysburg later this month I've dug out my old souvenir postcards from Centennial visits in 1961 and 1964 to add to last year's previous post https://civilwartalk.com/threads/gettysburg-during-the-centennial.125469/ If anyone can remember all the way back to the dark ages before "social media" like E-mail, Twitter, etc. these little missives served that purpose quite nicely, even if not as quickly. Of course they can still be purchased at tourist spots like Gettysburg, but probably not in the variety and quantity they once were as demonstrated here. I propose to post a few over the next week to whet the appetite of those who will be attending and invite others to do likewise. Mine were almost all purchased during my very first visit in July, 1961; the three or four that date later from August, 1964 will be indicated like the one below. The captions in italics will be the text on the backs of the cards like that above; other notes will be in regular type.
