Today I visited Reading City Park and the Ringgold Light Artillery Memorial. This memorial commemorates the patriotism and promptitude of the Ringgold Light Artillery of Reading, Pennsylvania, which reported for duty at Harrisburg, April 16, 1861, arriving there first of the Pennsylvania Companies; and with the Logan Guards of Lewistown, Washington Artillerists of Pottsville National Light Infantry of
Pottsville, and Allen Infantry of Allentown, entered the City of Washington April 18, 1861,the first defenders of the Capital, this monument was erected by the Citizens of Reading, Pennsylvania. Check out my photos on Flickr.
