Tourists from around the world admire the 1300-plus monuments on the Gettysburg battlefield in Pennsylvania. But time, nature and vandals are taking a toll. This 30-minute OnQ documentary profiles the people working to protect, repair and raise funds for the Gettysburg monuments. You'll also hear stories about monuments with unique and compelling connections to Western Pennsylvania.

"Stone Soldiers" is brought to you by the Emmy-winning team of producer/writer David Solomon, photographer/editor Paul Ruggieri, and narrator Andy Masich.
