Summary

A fresh Maine balsam wreath adorns the monument to the 5th Maine Battery on cemetery ridge as it stands watch over the Gettysburg battlefield July 15. Similar wreaths lay on every monument to honor fallen Maine soldiers spread across the battlefield, as a symbol of the home they left behind. The wreaths were placed as part of a joint-state staff ride between Maine and Alabama held on the 150 year anniversary of the turning point in the Civil War.
