Great Bethel!

Update! Here’s a picture from today’s observance. Our buddies JVQ and Bill Finlayson were on hand to dedicate the monument. Here’s Bill with a rubbing of his great-great (and maybe another great) uncle’s tombstone. James Lawrence Taylor was wounded on the 10th and died on the 11th. He’s buried in Brooklyn.
