Soldiers' and Sailors' Arch
This 1886 arch was built to honor Hartford soldiers and sailors who served in the Civil War.
I usually focus on the unique overall form of the arch, but viewing it more closely gives me a chance to appreciate the detailed carvings. In the center, note the stag, or "hart," the symbol of Hartford.
