Irish Brigade Monument

The Irish Brigade monument is another new monument and is one of my favorites. I like it because it has a good amount of information and a wonderful relief on the front showing the brigade going into combat. The back side has a portrait of Brigadier General Thomas Meagher. My only worry is that the monument is in such a prominent location that tons of people see it and there are tons of opportunities for someone to damage the intricate relief. I see these kinds of monuments on many battlefields and after 100 years various parts of the monument have been broken off, I don't want to see that happen here. Here are various pictures of the monument with several focusing on the amazing relief.
