Gettysburg, PA: "Life-size sculpture honoring Elizabeth Thorn, who was six months pregnant when she dug graves and buried 102 bodies after the battle. Most of her belongings were also destroyed during the battle, since her home, like all available structures, was used to house wounded soldiers. "Her baby girl was born in the fall, small and weak. Elizabeth said she never regained her full health after the battle of Gettysburg and its aftermath."
