We continue our presentation of photographs taken during and after the December “blizzard” which officially brought 16 inches of snow to the Gettysburg area on Saturday, December 19, 2009. Today we took a short walk along Sedgwick Avenue concentrating on the Sedwick Equestrian Monument. If other monuments got in our way, we took pictures of them also.



Although Major General John Sedgwick was a native of Connecticut, most of the monuments near his statue are from the State of Massachusetts. For instance, the 2nd Rhode Island Infantry Regiment. Rhode Island is really just a Massachusetts County, isn’t it? This view was taken facing northeast at approximately 8:30 AM on Sunday, December 20, 2009.
