The Soldiers and Sailors Monument was originaly dedicated on 4 July 1894 and has recently undergone a 2 million dollar makeover. If you live in the Cleveland area you should try to check it out sometime. In Cuyahoga County, 10,000 of the 15,600 eligible men served in the war, including my own 3rd Great Grandfather Michael Druckenbrod (188th Ohio Vol. Inf.). For more information:

Today’s Photo: Into the Sun
I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving!
This photo was taken looking directly into the sun. By using HDR I was able to still bring out the details on the front of the Soldiers’ and Sailors’ Monument. To the right you can see the top of the Terminal Tower. It looks like it is leaning because of distortion from a wide angle lens. That or it just leaned over so be in the photo also. To the left you can see the old May Company Building. I wish those department stores were still downtown, especially this time of year.
