Terrific photo! Happy Fourth to you!

Sue said...

You've stumped me again! Happy WW, and 4th of July!

Sandy Carlson said...

Burial of somebody statesmanly?

sobeit said...

Oh, I always feel silly when I don't know the answer!! lol Happy 4th and Happy WW!

EHT said...

Great guesses so far. Keep working on it. The first hint is that it is located in the south.

Celeste said...

A tomb

Starrlight said...

Hrm...the south? Lee's tomb maybe?

tegdirb92 said...

a bird sanctuary? Happy WW.

Tricotine said...

Mmmh... Could it be some famous soldier or hero's sepulture?

Happy 4th and WW! :-)

EHT said...

Second hint....No one is buried in this place. Also..there is a Georgia connection, but the structure is not in Georgia.

DariDonovan said...

Happy 4th!

Nancy Lindquist-Liedel said...

I love this photo. Thank you.

Patois said...

I'd have guessed a tomb, but you've said no one is buried in it. If it's got a Georgia connection, does it relate to the burning of Atlanta in some way?

Ms. George said...

It looks like it would belong on the grounds of Monticello...
by the way, Happy Fourth of July and I finally finished your 8 Random Things meme.

EHT said...

Nope....not the burning of Atlanta, but it is from the same era.

It does have some of the same style of Monticello in a way, but it has nothing to do with Jefferson or his great home.

The Tour Marm said...

I honestly don't know what this is or where it is.

But it is in a Roman/Pantheon style (which is why Ms. George thought of Monticello) and I will make a few twenty questions-type guesses:
Does it have to do with Sherman?
Is it a memorial?
Does it have to do with Andersonville?

P.S. Happy 4th! I spent mine in Washington, DC. between visiting the Archives (DOC etc.) and watching the fireworks. Photos when I can figure out how to use that new Slide.

EHT said...

It is a memorial. Sherman was involved. It does not involve any event that happened in Georgia.

Yes, I realize this one is a little difficult.

Go back and read through all of the clues.

The Tour Marm said...

Whoa. I'm having old-timers...I've seen this on tour!

I think it is one of the battlefield memorials at Vicksburg. Illinois?

EHT said...

Yes, you are indeed correct. It is the Illinois memorial at the Vicksburg battlefield.

I'll be telling all the interesting details about it in a couple of days.

The Tour Marm said...

I remembered it when I was rereading your Vicksburg post. (it's been 15 years since I've seen it.)
