Photos from Florida's Capital City (and occasionally a few from other interesting places I have been fortunate enough to visit in my travels!)

In the south, it is not unusual to find memorials dedicated to Confederate soldiers who died during the Civil War. This one is located in the small town of Quincy, just west of Tallahassee. It sits behind the county courthouse.
A beautiful homage and monument for these brave men!Great images!
Always good to remember some time when passing by.
Beautiful. Love the white marble.
it is pretty.
Interesting. Our country is fully stocked with war memorials. Few and far between PEACE memorials.
Lovely. My Honey and I are Civil War Buffs and enjoy seeing the various memorials. We visit the battlefields and cemeteries and find the history of our country we see there to be so very informative and moving. Wow, what a period it was in our past.
This memorial certainly does stand out.
A fine memorial, and also well kept!
Tje memorial matches the courthouse well.
I really like Lois E's comment above. I'm so glad there are memorials like these. All the detail and care are very evident.
Amazing! I stop everytime I see one.
Lois, was this memorial installed soon after the war or later? It looks like it might date to the 1970s or thereabout.
Jack, it's hard to see, but if you enlarge the third shot, the date reads April 26, 1884 at the bottom. I think it is just very well maintained or might have been restored at one point.
Yes, we have lots of Confederate memorials in Virginia too.
I even wrote a post about the women who went around getting the memorials done: http://webcroft.blogspot.com/2009/01/recognizing-women-who-memorialized.html
Wonderful photos of a southern tradition. Loved seeing the monuments.
