The itinerary tablets, or markers, which show actions taken by the Army of the Potomac each day from June 26, 1863 to July 5, 1863 are still a work in progress on East Cemetery Hill. This view was taken from the northwest facing southeast around 11:18 AM on Wednesday, August, 20th, 2008.

The itinerary tablets being placed on East Cemetery Hill by National Park Service maintenance workers now have metal backings (which will hold the tablet portion of the marker) bolted into the concrete bases.

See our previous post on the markers’ progress on July 23, 2008 and July 31, 2008.

Please see a later post on the markers’ progress on August 21, 2008.


The tablets were originally atop East Cemetery Hill across the street from the Evergreen Cemetery Gatehouse, shown in the background of this photograph. This view was taken from the north facing south at 11:19 AM on Wednesday, August, 20th, 2008.



As we showed in our original post about the markers on July 23rd, the majority of the bases are underground. This view was taken from the southeast facing northwest at 11:22 AM on Wednesday, August, 20th, 2008.



The 9th marker is visible in the left half of the frame. This view was taken from the southwest facing northeast at 11:25 AM on Wednesday, August, 20th, 2008.
