Side trip to Sunbury

Recently, I was coming back from North Carolina, and stayed the night in Columbus Ohio. I got up early on a Monday morning, headed back home to Chicago, but I was determined to run by Sunbury first, to visit with General Rosecrans.

Rosecrans was born near Sunbury, in 1819.  The stone below marks the site of his boyhood home.

A couple years ago, however, Sunbury decided to honor Rosecrans with a full equestrian statue, placed downtown on the town square.

The light wasn’t great (I’m not the guy you ask to handle your wedding pictures in lieu of a professional photographer, either – that didn’t help) but I did get a few images of the General. He looks pretty good.
