Walk for the Monuments--Saturday, April 28, 2001--City Island, Harrisburg, Pennsylvania

Herbert Hoover Students at start of walk.  Click for a larger image.More than 100 students, parents and teachers from Herbert Hoover Elementary School in Susquehanna Township, Dauphin County, met the "Monument Challenge" on April 28, 2001, walking to raise money to help preserve three Pennsylvania monuments at Gettysburg.

The fifth-graders walked six laps around Harrisburg's City Island to stack up three miles after raising donations for the monuments. The total of the money raised came to $4,100.00--the second highest amount raised so far by any school in the Monument Challenge. Two of the monuments honor regiments--the 28th and 29th Pennsylvania Volunteer Infantry--and the third monument marks the spot where Col. Strong Vincent of Erie died during the Union defense of Little Round Top on the second day of the battle.
