Glass Monument, Chartiers Cemetery

Old Pa Pitt has never seen another monument remotely like this one: a very realistic rendition of a soldier’s tent in marble. The marble has eroded, and the inscriptions are nearly illegible, but the name “Glass” and the date “Died May 15, 1864” are clear. Cemetery records indicate that the rest of the name is Michael A. Glass, but give us no birth date.
