DERBY - Since it's Memorial Day weekend I thought I'd post a photo of a war memorial monument that has graced the Green facing Elizabeth Street for more than 125 years.
|The monument is flanked by four 11-foot long cannons.|
You can read more here about the history of the monument. It features a bronze statue of a Civil War soldier atop a granite pedestal.
Full disclosure: I drove down Elizabeth Street Saturday after covering a ceremony at the Storm Engine Company firehouse to dedicate a park on O'Sullivan's Island in memory of the one and only Edward J. Cotter, Jr.
Since it was raining pretty steadily I rolled down the window and snapped photos from the driver's seat.
