Now come on.....you know I always try to have story behind my pics. This is such a different kind of headstone, isn't is? The boys in my class thought it was "Way cool!"

A boot with a laurel wreath, strange combination, I have no idea !
BTW Sunday I visited the expo "Precolumbian Art" here in Brussels and I put already some pictures on my blogs, for WW and TT but I have a lot more and will post them during the week in my photoblog (keyhole) if you are interested in, it was an amazing exposition !

Normally when I see a headstone that comes to a point, I think of the Confederacy. There is a star on the epaulette (Major) and I think the cannon might indicate artillery.

There's more than just a boot and a laurel wreath, that's a fire hydrant as well isn't it?

I have no idea either and my American history is err, well it isn't at all.

eija said...

Is it a tombstone? Maybe he died with his boots on...

Duchess said...

First thought was a headstone of a cowboy but I know it has to be more than that.

Another great WW

Sherpa said...

my first thoughts were "that's a civil war statue."

Fantastic Five said...

My first thoughts- it's a Civil War (Confederate) memorial, but I don't know where.

A tribute to B. A., located in eastern NY. I understand the boot but I'm at a loss as to what the thing that looks like a fire hydrant is!

Donna said...

Tribute to a firefighter??? Happy WW.

elementaryhistoryteacher said...

Apple, you are too smart. Thanks for simply listing the initials instead of the whole thing.

This is a monument to someone's injured foot.

This is not a Civil War monument.

More to follow later.

Saratoga National Historical Park

The Tour Marm said...

Silly me!
