In Memoriam: The Battlefield Cross

The tradition of using a rifle, boots and helmet (also known as the Battlefield Cross) to mark a fallen soldier's grave began during the American Civil War, perhaps as a replacement for a burial cross on the battlefield. Today it is used as a sign of respect to soldiers who have fallen.

A few years ago we had the opportunity to help create a memorial for Fallen Soldiers. We'd like to share some images of that special project in honor of Memorial Day.
