My great grandfather Gideon Percy survived Gettysburg so this pyramid has a special meaning for me. Regardless who is so call right in WARS , all monuments honoring the dead should be respected. After the war GP moved his family to Lexington where they lived out there lives until my grandfather was orphaned with his sister and raised by relatives in Chester. My grandfathers sister interned the family buried in Lexington to Riverview Cemetery in Richmond, and as far as I can tell laid to rest in one grave with the tombstone of their name-sake son.

Althea and I had been looking for a copy of my relative on the cover of Virginia Living , April 2008, and I found it at the library today for a dime.
