East Cavalry Field - Gettysburg
The monument to the 1st, 5th, 6th and 7th Michigan Cavalry of the Michigan Cavalry Brigade stands in the always-quiet East Cavalry Field at Gettysburg. Isolated from the rest of the battlefield, the site of horse soldier fighting on the third day has not changed much from when Brig. General George Armstrong Custer led his men into battle with the cry "Come on, you Wolverines!" (Click image for larger view).
