Monument Sustains Gouges

06/18/2008

Standing proudly since 1890, and surviving 118 years without damage, the Civil War Monument at Monument Park now has two contractor inflicted gouges on the East side of the Quincy Granite base.

The several 8 ton slab base was not protected during the installation of the new World War II Memorial Walkway and now has one gouge about an inch to an inch and a half long with a second gouge about 3 inches long and wider.

One would have thought that protection of some sort would have been in order before any work was started on the new memorial.
