Also, Boonslick, you ar far more intuitive and artistic than many people. Ironically enough, I saw a facebook posting from some Kansas friends about two weeks ago. They were touring the Vicksburg battlefield and were sort of scratching their heads over the Kansas monument. I really have no excuse to comment on it because I've never seen it. I can say that it's unlike anything else I've ever seen in the way of a civil war monument, so its uniqueness is in its favor. Maybe I will get there soon.Actually, I think that it is a pretty cool monument. I saw the symbolism upon just looking at the work and thinking about a bit. The circles are most appropriate. But then again I see everything in existence as circularity.
There is symbolism to the monument (See link). I'm just not a fan of the style.
No.Am I the only one who finds the Kansas Monument at Vicksburg to be a bit. . . odd?
