On our way home from a trip to Columbus, Ohio, we stopped to stretch our legs by walking through the downtown area of Indianapolis. Immediately, the Soldiers' and Sailors' Monument caught my attention. We opted to circle it and see what the monument was all about.
Unfortunately, the monument was being restored at the time of our visit so our view was a bit obstructed by scaffolding. However, the impressive nature of the monument could still be felt. The sculpture of the soldier returning home is particularly poignant.
