Wondrous Words #178

Welcome to Wondrous Words Wednesday. It’s the day we celebrate new words we’ve discovered in our readng. This week I learned one new word. I found it in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania. It was on one of those educational placards on the battlefield.

lodgment:  “Pickett’s men made a small lodgment in the Union army at the Angle, but they could not hold it.”

A lodgment is a military term for a temporary defensive work madhise on a captured part of an enemy’s fortifications to secure a position and provide protection.

This picture does not show lodgment. I just added it to show you how beautiful Gettysburg is.
