Memorial Day at Carroll Park.

As you can see by this sign, Memorial Day Monday you can head down to Carroll Park for ceremony at the war memorial monument.  We wanted to learn more about the monument itself and would like to share our findings.  It's been around since 1921 and was made by the Brooklyn-born sculptor Eugene H. Morahan.  This particular monument memorializes soldiers from the surrounding 8th Assembly District who fought and lost their lives in the first World War.  There is a picture from of the monument below.
