Thanks! Annette is no longer with us, but her daughters and nephew are. I thought she was so cute when I dropped my measuring tape on her (it didn't bother her a bit) that I had to take the picture. I call that picture "Seamstress Annette."

It appears to be a war memorial, is it in Europe?

I am beginning to strongly suspect that you erected this memorial yourself, yesterday morning, with the express purpose of sending us off on a mad internet search, only to find that we did it all in vain!

Is this memorial in the mid-west? South? It looks a lot like one in New York, designed by Daniel Draddy, but it isn't the one I found.

Does it represent one war or more than one? It reminds me of some of the Soldiers & Sailors Monuments, but it doesn't look exactly like any of the ones I have seen pictures of.

lots of american flags. One of the men positioned at the base, on the left, looks like he has a Revolutionary War cap on, but no idea.

It was built in 1889 to honor a regiment in the Civil War.
