      Oats could not get the monument where he wanted it, on Little Round
      Top, his most advanced position. He was unwilling to place the
      monument where the rules allowed it.

          I agree Tom! I would not have been involved with the 90th Pa monument foundation otherwise. Putting that monument up was a dream of a a good friend, Jim Durkin. When he showed me the photo of the original monument placed by the veterans, I really felt that it needed to be replaced on the field. Unfortunately, Jim never got to see the results of what he started, but I knew he was looking down on us at the dedication. Jim was one of those folks who always put his money where his mouth was.
          Two other folks who deserve the credit for getting the monument back to its rightful place are Eric Schmincke and Gary Casteel. It would not be there yet if it weren't for their dedication.

            You too helped along with many who
            contributed with their hard earned
            dollars, time and talent. John Howard
            and the staff deserve much thanks as well
            as we along with the park workers
            endured severe weather while installing
            the monument. Welding in the rain was not
            fun......
