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.
