This is the Soldiers and Sailors Monument.  It towers over Public Square in downtown Cleveland.

The monument was built more than 115 year ago to commemorate the civil war.  I love to look up at its 125 foot column, especially when the sky behind it is this brilliant beautiful blue.

You can go inside the monument.  They recently restored the interior back to its original colors.

Even though this is just yards from where I work, I've never gone inside.  But it's on my list of things to do in Cleveland. Maybe today.
