8th Pennsylvania Cavalry at Pennsylvania Monument, Gettysburg, PA
USA

8th Cavalry Monument of Capt. William A. Corrie, Division 2, Brigade 2. Located on Cemetery Ridge with the Pennsylvania Monument. Taken on the 150th Anniversary of the Gettysburg address with a war reenactment. Because of the US Government shutdown by right wing extremist, the reenactment did not happen here at the Pennsylvanian Monument. The American Civil War fought from 1861 to 1865 was the bloodiest conflict in American history. At Gettysburg was the war's bloodiest battle with 51,000 casualties.

    The rider was holding a riffle, probably broken off by vandals/kids, why are people so destructive of symbols, history, culture?

    More About USA

    The United States is one of the most diverse countries on earth, jam packed full of amazing sights from St. Patrick's cathedral in New York to Mount Hollywood California.The Northeast region is where it all started. Thirteen British colonies fought the American Revolution from here and won their independence in the first successful colonial rebellion in history. Take a look at these rolling hills carpeted with foliage along the Hudson river here, north of New York City.The American south is known for its polite people and slow pace of life. Probably they move slowly because it's so hot. Southerners tend not to trust people from "up north" because they talk too fast. Here's a cemetery in Georgia where you can find graves of soldiers from the Civil War.The West Coast is sort of like another country that exists to make the east coast jealous. California is full of nothing but grizzly old miners digging for gold, a few gangster rappers, and then actors. That is to say, the West Coast functions as the imagination of the US, like a weird little brother who teases everybody then gets famous for making freaky art.The central part of the country is flat farmland all the way over to the Rocky Mountains. Up in the northwest corner you can find creative people in places like Portland and Seattle, along with awesome snowboarding and good beer. Text by Steve Smith.
