National Cemetery Dedication Click on the MEDIA ITEMS below for more information


This drawing illustrates the ceremony described in this text. The ladies sat in the left of the stand. The President and his party were met by a miliary escort at the Sharpsburg station, and the public arrived on foot or by coach.

The cornerstone was laid for the monument which was itself not dedicated until 1880. This text describes it as a "Colossal Statue of an American Soldier standing guard over the loyal dead."
