The 11th PVI Company K is dedicated to preserving the memory of those who fought in the War Between the States. Not only the members of the original 11th's memory, but ALL veterans.
In November of 1997, we present the National Park Service with a check for the permanent care of the 11th PVI monument. We raised the funds through the sale of replica statues of Sallie. .
Sitting atop peaceful Oak Ridge, near the Eternal Peace Light, the 11th Pennsylvania Volunteer Infantry (PVI) Monument occupies the same ground the unit defended on July 1, 1863, at the Battle of Gettysburg. The granite base includes two fine bronze statues: crowning the top is an ever vigilant soldier preparing to fire, near the bottom of the base is a small dog curled up as if about to sleep.
