This is rather incredible monument and tribute. I think feelings ran high in Connecticut!

But it's never over. When I joined the Navy (in the 50s) there were sons of the South in boot camp that were still fighting the Civil War! As people do yet today!

I do believe that 'war' still goes on. Do they really think it'll RISE again?

What a beautiful monument and such a superb capture against those lovely blue skies, Jack.

Quite a memorial. I do wish Lowell and Birdman weren't right.

It's a lovely monument to a horrible time.

Now that's odd: royal. It was the Battle Hymn of the Republic, The United and Confederate States.
