Interesting post Bill. Of course, Pennsylvania is filled with Civil War monuments, but one of my favorites is the one in downtown Lancaster. Any information on that one?

Alfred Brophy

Monuments! I love them. Talk of the causes of the war in slavery, too.

Bill Reynolds

Juliet. The lancaster meorial is at t the top of my list. More on that tomorrow. BillAnd Al, more on the art of the memorials.

Bill, I suggest a correction. I go to Maine most summers and the Civil War monuments in the coastal towns do not seem forlorn. I have pictures of a few that I want to get reformatted so Al can use them. Inland Maine is a different story. It is the Maine of Empire Falls (although its author Richard Russo lives on the coast in Camden) and there the old towns with their abandoned downtown store fronts and mills are indeed forlorn as are many of the small towns in the south. I shall never forget going through places like downtown Danville or Port Gibson. Those places, north and south, now have much economic suffering that they share in common thousands of miles apart.
