As part of my commitment to Wreaths Across America 2019, I drove to Paxton MA to lay a wreath on the grave of my adopted Civil War soldier, Pvt. George W. Gould, who sacrificed his life at the bloody battle of Cold Harbor in 1864 to save the Union and end human chattel slavery. There is a tag on the wreath that tells his story and links to the transcribed Civil War correspondence of Pvt. Gould on this website. I am gratified to see that flags I placed on his grave on Memorial Day & Veterans Day are still in place and waving o’er the snowy landscape. Huzzah Pvt. Gould!
