We were on a tour bus, so we did not have the time to stop and walk up to the Monument. We slowly drove by it. There was complete silence on the bus as we (mostly northerners) gazed respectfully at the Memorial. It took my breath away. I could feel the tears welling up in my eyes. I have been to the Gettysburg Battlefield, and I remember how deeply touched I was. I experienced the same feelings here. These were our fellow countrymen who fought and died for the South. May they rest in peace.
