I believe the Chickamauga vandalism was reported a while ago.....I am reporting to the city of Atlanta and they gave me a reference number. I am asking others about Chickmauga
The statue on Snodgrass Hill was the only vandalism I observed in the park.I will report this too if they are not aware.
What was the Chickamuaga marker specifically? I mean where was it located.
Got spanked, Huh? That is how it happens. Were I to have been arrested for vandalism, The Dad's disapproval would have been much worse than the fine. However, the rules change on Halloween.I was arrested years ago for vandalism... I paid over a grand in restitution and my case was dismissed. I learned, and never did it again.
People can and DO change for the better.
That will be a difficult repair I'd think. I'm assuming somebody has the hands ?"Chickamauga & Chattanooga National Military Park: Thank you for the photo. This monument is indeed on our list of memorials to be repaired, though it will be challenging due to the nature of the damage. A number of years ago, a tree fell and broke the hands, a constant challenge in this heavily wooded battlefield. What a challenge it must have been to fight in the woods! (ws)"
I agree with the Lt. Some years ago, I had the extreme good fortune to spend a week in Rome, Italy. Our hotel was very near the Spanish Stairs, so we naturally saw that site nearly every day. One afternoon, returning from a long walk through the city, we saw two young vandals under the close supervision of the Carabinieri. They were wearing bright orange vests and meticulously scrubbing off the spray paint they had used to "decorate" a section of the railing. In my view, their public humiliation was well deserved.I detest vandalism of any sort. It is a crime against the entire community. Those who are caught in the act (which is rare) should be chained to the spot until they repair their damage.
Unless they broke up upon impact with the monument base or other hard surfaceThat will be a difficult repair I'd think. I'm assuming somebody has the hands ?
All the repairs I've worked on involved vertical pieces and even they are usually braced until the adhesive cures (we use one our director gets from Germany that is especially made for the purpose). It'll be tricky to brace the hands but I hope the repair gets done somehow. Good luck.
