G.A.R. Grave Star 3D Model
There are over 160 Civil War veterans at Mount Pleasant Cemetery, the oldest surviving cemetery in the Sioux Falls area.
Many of them have these distintive metal stars with built-in brackets for flags on the rear. These stars were planted by the gravestones of members of the Grand Army of the Republic. See this link for further information: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Grand_Army_of_the_Republic
I thought this would be a good time to share this 3D model. (I realized after the fact that I forgot to properly scale this model. It should measure about 7.25 inches across. I also forgot to repair the rear of this model to make it properly ready for printing. I apologize and will try to fix it later).
Here’s to all our veterans, from all our battles and wars. We will never be able to thank them enough.
