      The fall 1995 Blue & Gray Magazine has a picture of this
      monument, page 64, and some accompanying text: "The fragile memorial did not
      last, but it is uncertain as to when it was damaged, vandalized or simply
      fell apart. Parts of the monument are stored in the park's curatorial collection"

      There is also a picture of it in John W. Schildt's "Drums along the Antietam",
      p100. Some of the content of this book might be questionable, but
      it does have some neato rare pictures, such as the Dunker Church region
      before the bypass and visitor's center were built, and a very early
      picture of the national cemetery and several farm houses that are
      kind of off the regular trail (eg, the H Rohrback farmhouse).
