(09.09.2018) Before departing Gettysburg we visited the Gettysburg National Military Park and National Cemetery Annex where we visited the Friend to Friend Masonic Memorial at Gettysburg
Union General Winfield Scott Hancock and Confederate General Lewis Addison Armistead were personal friends and members of the Masonic Fraternity.
Depicted in this sculpture is Union Captain Henry Bingham, a Mason and staff assistant to General Hancock, himself wounded, rendering aid to the fallen Confederate General. Armistead is shown handing his watch and personal effects to be taken to his friend, Union General Hancock.
A fraternity of leadership.
Nearly everyone has been touched by cancer either through their own personal battle or through the battle of someone they love. We participate in Relay For Life because we know we are making a difference in the fight to end cancer by raising funds and cancer awareness.
