Verterans Day Tribute

Houston, Ohio

This Civil War soldier was a member of the GAR (Grand Army of the Republic) After the war, many Union veterans joined the GAR, which is similar to today's American Legion. They became a powerful political action group, fighting for veteran benifits. GAR was disbanded in 1956 when the last member passed away.

Very fitting and inspiring tribute, Jack. Man, that's an old grave marker too. Thanks for all the info. This turned out beautifully.

The sky makes it look like there is battle going on the background

lots of nice foreground detail on a dark morning. Did you use flash?
