I was recently researching the statue of General William Wells at Gettysburg for work. Wells was the commander of the First Vermont Cavalry and won the Medal of Honor for his actions at Gettysburg. There’s a statue of him at the base of Big Round Top.
On the base of the statue, there’s a bas relief in bronze showing the desperate cavalry charge for which Wells won the medal, and I studied it for a while and then noticed something and could not stop laughing.
That horse right in the middle. The one looking straight at you.
“You may be wondering how I got here…”
I don’t know why I find this so amusing, but it is seriously cracking me up.
