This view of Stone-Meredith Avenue showcases the striking fall colors of early November. The 7TH Wisconsin Infantry monument is seen at right, while in the left distance, a smaller and a larger flank marker sit side by side. The monument seen at left is that of the 2ND Wisconsin Infantry. Beside the 2ND, part of the bronze brigade marker describing the Iron Brigade’s action in Herbst Woods can be seen.
