This monument took my breath away. It is truly beautiful and reminds us of the sacrifice the cavalries made at Gettysburg. Such courage it must have took to charge into this battle. It is a place of humility and pride.

Examining the East Cavalry Monument on a day of monument examination is really something special. Seeing examples of heroic actions under heavy fire makes you proud to be American regardless which side of the war you were on.
