A Matter of Opinion

images-1In researching and writing for this blog, I have had much help from friends. One is Mr. Steve Splittgerber, who takes wonderful photographs.

He sent a couple of images my way from the Frankfort Cemetery, in Frankfort, Kentucky. I am currently writing Aftermath of Battle for the ECW series, and have been thinking a lot about graves and memory. With this mindset, Steve’s photos struck a poignant chord. Both are Confederate monuments. I share them here.
