|Grave of Corporal Rihl|
Along Route 11, north of Greencastle
Reflecting on the words for a moment, I turned to see another monument located only a couple yards in front of where I had parked. Hidden by trees was a large granite marker and the name etched in the front was clearly visible: Rihl.
On June 28, he resigned his position and General Meade was appointed the head of the Union army and started after the Confederate army.
