West Virginia Trip- PART 2

This was a statue that was across the street from the fire station in Hinton West Virginia. I usually overlook war statues but it was brought to my attention as my husband laughed while reading the inscription. For some reason I didn't get a photo of the whole statue. I don't know where my head is other than I was sick. I'll use that as an excuse!
I tried to brighten the photo up a bit so you could read the print. But the last line was what made my husband laugh.
If you cannot read it it says:
"This monument erected in honor of American valor as displayed by the Confederate Soldiers from 1861 to 1865, and to perpetuate to remotest ages the patriotism and fidelity to principles of the heroes who fought and died for a LOST CAUSE."
I have never seen a memorial worded as that one! It made me laugh too!
Stay tuned, I have a couple more posts of my West Virginia trip left! Have a great week!

That is worth a million bucks. Oh my goodness, that's hysterical.

A Lost Cause!

A hoot!
