Monuments - Burnside's Attack

These were my two favorite pictures of monuments from the area of Burnside's attack. The monuments themselves are not extraordinary but the overall effect I thought was nice. The first one is the 12th Ohio's monument. It is on Burnside's left but it not too far forward. I just like how it looked with the grass, trees and fence.
And this is the 8th Connecticut's monument. It, and the nearby monument for Hawkins' Zouaves, mark the farthest Union advance. The day was getting late and the clouds were starting to look pretty neat. After this Mike and I would go back near the Sunken Road and get some great sunset shots, though we didn't stay til dark.
