The monument to the 10th Massachusetts Volunteer
Infantry Regiment at Gettysburg National Battlefield Park has been damaged by vandals.
These criminals desecrated the monument by
breaking off three of the four rifles on top and breaking the bayonet from the fourth, as well as the canteen.
We, the members of the current 10th Massachusetts
Volunteer Infantry are determined to have the monument repaired and re-dedicated prior to the 150th anniversary of the Battle
of Gettysburg July 1, 2013. We cannot do this without your assistance.
According to the National Park Service,
the cost to restore the monument to its original configuration is about $4500. Donations of any size to help us to restore
this monument to the Gallant Tenth will be greatly appreciated, and as a non profit organization it would be tax deductible.
