Virginia Memorial Preservation & Patination Project

September 7, 2022

Preservation work on the Virginia Memorial at Gettysburg National Military Park began Tuesday, Sept. 6, 2022, and is expected to conclude by Sept. 30, 2022. This project will ensure a lasting professional patination closely approximating the original patination, in recipe, color, depth and longevity.
