Description of Subject Matter: The Sherman memorial is located where William Tecumseh Sherman reviewed his troops returning from the Civil War in 1865. It's a large memorial with names of his army's military encounters, statues of men, and Sherman himself on a horse high above it all.
Sherman's father died suddenly when William was 9 years old. One of 11 children, they moved into the home of Thomas Ewing, a U.S. Senator and cabinet member. (William eventually married Ewing's daughter.) William obtained an appointment to West Point and graduated 6th in his class in 1840. He served in the Mexican War under Philip Kearny and was later assigned out in San Francisco. He resigned his commission in 1853, trying his hand in business.
After the attack on Fort Sumter, he rejoined the Army. Late in 1861, he was removed from his position after being accused of cracking up under pressure. He was assigned to Grant's army and fought vigorously at Shiloh. He helped Grant in the Vicksburg campaign and became a Corps commander. After Grant went east to take over the Federal armies in 1863, Sherman assumed command of all western troops. He launched the Atlanta campaign in 1864, the infamous March to the Sea in the same year, and eventually accepted Joseph Johnston's surrender in 1865.
The memorial was built in 1903. In 1976, a bronze eagle on the memorial was stolen. Surprisingly, they didn't have any decent photos of it, eventually recreating it based on a blurry 1905 portrait as well as the outline that was left on the memorial. Finally, in August 2005, a newly created eagle was put onto the monument. That's what caused me to take a bunch of pictures of the monument.
Bigger photos? To save server space, the full-sized versions of these images have either not been loaded to the server or have been removed from the server. (Only some pages are loaded with full-sized images and those usually get removed after three months.)
I still have them though. If you want me to email them to you, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
and I can email them to you, or, depending on the number of images, just repost the page again will the full-sized images.

2003 photos: Equipment this year: I decided my Epson digital camera wasn't quite enough for what I wanted. Since I already had Compact Flash chips for it, I had to find another camera which used CF chips. That brought me to buy the Fujifilm S602 Zoom in March 2003. A great digital camera, I used it exclusively for an entire year.
Trips this year: Three-week trip this year out west, mostly in Utah.
Number of photos taken this year: 68,000.
