Product Overview

Visitors flock to the battlefield to witness in person the hallowed ground of the Gettysburg National Military Park, which contains perhaps the largest outdoor collection of stone and bronze sculptures in the world. It is certainly the most memorialized baulefield in the United States. And while they may be drawn by the history of Gettysburg, many are compelled by the monuments, markers, and tablets that dot the landscape. Many of monuments tell stories and provide details of the battle that few have ever read. In some cases, the designs are elaborate. In other cases, they are simple. But in all cases, they serve as permanent memorials to the brave soldiers of the North and South who fought with all of their hearts and souls and died for what they believed. This book opens the door to the monuments of the Gettysburg National Military Park, which for so long have held their silent vigil over the ground that cost so many so much.

Their Silent Vigil, Volume One, contains drawings of every regimental monument, clearly displaying every inscription and feature. with painstaking attention to detail, Robert Nixon has created and organized this amazing collection of depictions. Applying his engineering background and creativity, he has fashioned an informative and enduring tribute to the sacrifices made with courage, honor, and loyalty. This provides that tribute in a clear, easy to read format that can be enjoyed in the comfort of your home or while sitting on the boulders of Devil's Den.
