I really like this and statues of that era: Allegorical figure of Lady Liberty, same as on Capitol.
TO HER SONS WHO DIED IN THE
UNION MIGHT BE PRESERVED
LIBERTY SECURED FOR ALL
I agree with Rob, above. Let's hope it does not get torn down... or explained to mean something other than the inscription states. Nice shot, Doug! A unique window of opportunity, there, with the sliver of light. Very interesting sight... and site, with the train running so close, and within the memorial site.
For a second i thought it had derailed and plowed through the park.
If that train is as close as it appears to the monument, I can't believe the vibration hasn't affected it. Is that a 10mph area?
I believe that it is all 5 mph.
What a fabulous shot!
