Next stop is the North Carolina Monument. It was designed by the same artist that did Mt. Rushmore. When I first came here in 1984, this monument grabbed my spirit and it still does. It is located just north of the Virginia monument. The five Tarheels look as if they were just ordered forward to charge across the bloody battlefield. Again, this is the area of the main force that formed Pickett's Charge. Many North Carolinians died on July 3, 1863. This is a must stop for anyone who visits this field.
Maddie's Spirit is grabbed too
