Confederate Monument in Carrollton, MS

I took these pics during my trip Friday of Memorial Day Weekend (May 26, 2006).

These are of the Monument to the men of Carrollton, MS, who died fighting for what they believed in during the Civil War.

Do not turn this into anything political. I just thought it was a nice piece of history and I wanted to share it with you. I don't care if you are pro-North, pro-South, or don't give a rat's ass. This is just a cool piece of history.




There is an inscription around the statue. This is what it says:
"Erected by Carroll County Under the Auspices of (not sure who it says) 1905.
TO THE MEMORY OF CARROLL'S CONFEDERATE SOLDIERS.
WHO FOUGHT IN DEFENSE OF OUR CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS.
FROM BETHEL TO APPOMATTOX.
TRUTH CRUSHED TO EARTH WILL RISE AGAIN.
"

no politics here, just sad that people want to turn their back on history. no matter good, bad or ugly there is something be learned but when you neglect it will kick you in your ass.
