The Wheat Field & the 116th PA
According to the book, "Gettysburg: Stories of Men and Monuments", an officer walking over the battlefield came upon a young soldier from the 116th Pennsylvania Infantry. Although killed during the battle, the trace a slight smile remained on his face. The inspiration for this beautiful monument came from that young soldier.
