More on Civil War Memorials in the North
Between Sandy and illness, I have not been able to post for a while, but here goes. Juliet Moringiello reminded me of the Civil War memorial in Lancaster, Pa. It is a stunner; perhaps the best I have ever seen. One interesting feature of the monument is a memorial to sailors in the Northern Navy, a tribute I do not believe I have seen anywhere else. (The Navy played a decisive role in the Civil War, of course; it was not just the blockade, but the ability to move troops along the periphery, a feat Admiral Mahon must have admired.) I cannot find pictures other than these on Wikipedia, which are pretty striking.
