Silent Guards of Gettysburg - Gettysburg National Military Park, Pennsylvania
Silent Guards of Gettysburg - Gettysburg National Military Park, Pennsylvania
    Over 140 years after the battle at Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, these silent cannons still sit as guards over the battlefield that some consider the turning point of the American Civil War.
     During a three day period in July of 1863, there would be 51,000 casualties, making these fields the place of the bloodest battle of the American Civil War.
     Five months later, during the dedication of the Soldiers' National Cemetery in Gettysburg, President Lincoln spoke these famous words. "-- that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain -- that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom -- and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth".
