Ascent Trip Report

Should be a required stop for anyone visiting the battlefield. Pass the very nice Woman's Memorial Monument of Elizabeth Thorn, who dug graves for the soldiers while 6 months pregnant. The statue was designed, funded and placed by a group of civilian re-enactors and historians (my wife being one of them). Also on the way to the high point you will pass the Jenny Wade grave, marked with a flag.
