    What is the figure on top of the block at the bottom. It looks like it might be an animal, maybe a dog of some kind?

    It is a dog. It is an Irish wolf hound. The woman was left in the picture to give an idea of the size of the monument. Either this monument, or the one dedicated to the Army of Northern Virginia, have to be the most beautiful monuments in the park. Bulge.

    Bulge,

    They's probably one or two people on this thread that'll take offence to the words "Northern" and "Virginia" being used in the same sentence.

    You bring back the memories, but I do not remember this monument. I need to get back to Gettysburg Battlefield. I'll never forget standing in the spot where our first Minnesota regiment was anihilated during action on the second day of the battle. They saved the day but 85% were lost in 20 minutes. And except for the breastworks and battle scars the landscape is preserved as they saw it.
