Civil War Sunday - Soldier Monuments

So many towns and cities in the United States have these monuments - the Binghamton, NY area of upstate NY is no exception.  Our local paper ran an interesting article on local monuments today.  So, inspired by that....

I don't have a good photo of the Binghamton Soldiers and Sailors monument on the lawn of the Broome County Courthouse so instead I will link to someone who does.

In Owego, NY, about 15 miles west of Binghamton, is one of the better known monuments.

This is another angle of the Tioga County Civil War memorial.

This is part of the Civil War monument in downtown Portland, Maine at 1 Monument Square.

I plan to expand my collection of Civil War monument pictures in the coming years.  Stay tuned.....
