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.
