Just returned from a relatively short bike ride through town. I took a few photographs of the area around Court House Square including this one of Stonewall Jackson. I much prefer this statue of Jackson as opposed to the Gold’s Gym version up at Manassas; it has just the right proportions and nicely captures Jackson’s prowess. I would have taken some pictures of the Lee statue, but unfortunately a woman was relieving herself at the monument’s base. Well, I guess we all have our way of showing our appreciation for the good general. Additional photos can be found here.
