As part of my commitment to Wreaths Across America 2020, I made the long drive today to Paxton MA to lay a wreath on the grave of my adopted Civil War soldier, Pvt. George W. Gould of the 25th Mass. Vol. Infantry, who sacrificed his life at the bloody battle of Cold Harbor in 1864 to save the Union & end human chattel slavery. There is a tag on the wreath that tells his story & links to the transcribed Civil War correspondence of Pvt. Gould on this website. The two flags in front are ones I placed there earlier this year, on Veterans Day and Memorial Day. Huzzah to Pvt. George W. Gould!
