Civil War Statue

North Scituate, Rhode Island
Yesterday, I ventured out to my home state to the April Meeting of the Rhode Island Genealogy Society.

They meet all over the state and go to places that I have never been in the 23 years I lived there. Hubs did spend time in Scituate, RI in the summers before we met so at least we were somewhat familiar with the area.

My friend, Robert Grandchamp, author of several books on the Civil War, was going to be one of the speakers so I could not miss this event.

After the meeting we went over to look at the monument there and I didn't have a real camera with me so I took photos with my iPhone. They came out fairly well.

Behind this church is a cemetery and I resisted the urge to go look. It was a miracle.

I will post all three sides of this monument this week in case any of my readers has an ancestor mentioned on them.

Such a great idea: to meet in different parts of the state for each meeting. A true learning experience in many ways.
