I wanted to show  Victory, the part of the monument that is difficult to see, when the monument is seen from the ground.
The Soldiers and Sailors Monument has a granite figure of Victory with bronze figures of  sentinel and  sailor from the Civil War and was dedicated on 5/30/1889.  The memorial was made possible through a bequest from the estate of Albert G Cook, a president of the First National Bank of Seneca Falls.  He wanted to leave something that would be a monument to the brave soldiers and sailors who gave their lives for our country.
