This was the terrible sight that greeted us in 2011. Vandals had damaged the monument in the early 1990s and it was repaired. Either the repairs had failed or vandals stuck again. It was a very sad feeling to witness this soldier lying on the ground that he had been standing guard over for over 100 years.
These links cover the repair of "Henry" as he was named while in our care over the winter of 2011/2012.

 Monument Restorations 

Within the links below you willSome of the damage repaired was due to vandals over the decades, and some of the repairs  were due to the aging process of being exposed to the elements. Funding for these endeavors is always a challenge and the work is not easy, but the results are beauty, dignity and honor restored for future generations.
