Veterans Day 2021

For Veterans Day 2021, I once more made the long drive to Paxton MA to place a flag on the grave of my adopted Civil War soldier, Pvt. George W. Gould of the 25th Mass. Vol. Infantry, Company F, 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 attached that tells his story & links to the transcribed Civil War correspondence of Pvt. Gould on this website I created to honor him. I was pleased to find that the flag I placed on Memorial Day remains in place. I hope to find the time in warmer weather to clean and restore the adjacent gravestone of his daughter, Ada, which stands in sharp contrast to Pvt. Gould’s grave, which I cleaned and restored back in 2019 … Huzzah Pvt. George W. Gould!
