Head of soldier statue returned

It took them a while, but vandals who beheaded a statue of a Union soldier two weeks ago finally had a change of heart.

Police found the detached granite head resting on a cemetery wall near the Shirley (Mass.) town common, where the Civil War memorial statue has stood for nearly 120years.

The statue is inscribed with names of 58 men who fought in the Civil War, including 19 who died. • Article
