New York

My wife treated me to a long weekend in the wonderful city of New York for my birthday. We did a lot of great things and during a ramble around Brooklyn I came across a fabulous monumental arch celebrating the Union victory in the American Civil War. This photo shows some of the detail from one of the bronze reliefs. This neo-Roman style monument is located on Grand Army Plaza close to the Brooklyn Bridge and was designed by John Duncan in 1892.
