December 18 Hello all, I have visited Gettysburg National Military Park many times. I noticed that the statue of General Longstreet on his horse is not raised - it sits directly on the ground and is easy to overlook. When I first saw the statue I thought it looked like a carousel horse - it did not seem dignified. I asked the tour guide about it and was told that many seem to blame the loss of the battle on General Longstreet for various reasons, and some have suggested that is reflected in the monument. I am not sure what group dedicated the monument. Any thoughts on this subject? Thank you.
