An odd statue of a soldier, one-half Yankee and one-half Reb, in an Alabama county that didn't join the Confederacy. A simple Yankee soldier statue would have been less complicated, but this is the South.

This monument to the pain of civil war is a soldier wearing half a uniform from the Confederacy and half from the Union. The clothes are worn and the sword is broken.
