The short, determined man in the Bermuda shorts walks with a floppy limp along the roadsides of Carroll County. You see him pTC around the next bend, over the next hill.You wave, and he lifts his right arm. You speed past, and he becomes a shrinking image in your rearview mirror.But if you stop one day, you meet Donald L. Legore, a gentle, round-faced 67-year-old native Carroll Countian, who walks three to four hours every day as therapy."I've been walking pretty close to six years now," he says in a soft, high-pitched voice.

"It's the only memorial we have to this battle that impacted the Battle of Gettysburg," said Tom Legore, local historian who has spent more than 40 years researching the Main Street skirmish. "It's a tribute to not just the men on both sides who fought here but to the citizens of Westminster who opened their homes to care for the wounded afterward," Legore said.
