Day 392

An overlooked memorial

January 25th, 2013



I've passed by this intersection more than a dozen times in my life, but never before have I noticed this odd little monument sitting outside the Bronx County Courthouse. The plaque reads:

Keystone from an arch of the old bridge at Chateau Thierry
Gloriously and successfully defended by American troops
***
Presented to the County of the Bronx by the Grand Street Boys Post No. 1026 of the American Legion
Nov. 11, 1940
