(6-2006Detail-1   Other Side This monument dedicated to the 127th Pennsylvania Volunteer Infantry is located at the Fredericksburg National Cemetery. The 127th PA was a nine-month regiment that saw action in just two battles, both at Fredericksburg

On Dec 13, 1863 the 127th PA lost one-third of its men in a failed attempt to take the heights. Five months later, in May 1863, it supported the 6th Corps in a successful attack against the same ground


(6-2006Detail This is one of four upright cannons in the center of Fredericksburg National Cemetery. When I took this picture on June 25, 2006, this was the only cannon out of the four that had a brass label. It was about the revert to another torrential downpour so I had to take the picture and move fast as I was warned the cemetery is an excellent location for lightening strikes

The monument also commemorates the 83rd NY Volunteer Infantry, also known as the 9th New York State Militia
