Additional comments.
1. Monument rededication costs...
An interesting note. The cost of replacing the concrete sidewalk at the base, manufacturing the rededication plaque, as well as the cost of the logistics for holding the rededication ceremony was about $5,000. That’s $1,000 more then it cost to erect the monument in 1907. Note To Editor only visible by Contributor and editor
