Pic of the Week: The Major General George Gordon Meade Memorial at Gettysburg

 
Each time I go to Gettysburg there is a different monument or statue which holds my attention, whether it's a lonely, eery grave or the very site where Lincoln gave the Gettysburg address. The last time I visited the parks at Gettysburg, I was quite taken with the man on horseback statue - a memorial to Major General George Meade. The George Meade statue displays the Civil War general seated proudly on his horse (Old Baldy). I'd seen it several times before, so I wasn't quite sure why it looked so much more substantial this time. Perhaps it was because we approached it from a different angle, from downhill and with the sun shining brightly behind it.
