monumentEvery year on November 11th, the nation pays tribute to America’s veterans for their service, patriotism and sacrifice for the common good through the observance of Veteran’s Day. The veterans of today that have seen war have witnessed it in other countries, but a little over 150 years ago, the War Between the States claimed around 750,000 lives on American soil.  North Carolina played a significant role in the Civil War and on July 3, 1929 the North Carolina Monument was dedicated at Gettysburg National Military Park. This document was published on the rededication of the monument at Gettysburg on July 1, 1963. It includes a history of the monument, a narrative of North Carolina at Gettysburg, as well as some outstanding North Carolina soldiers who fought at Gettysburg.
