City to restore sword on monument

The City of Pottsville's Garfield Square Committee will spend $3,200 to replace a sword on the square's Soldiers and Sailors Monument.

Vandals had damaged the monument, removing the sword from the hilt of one of the statues.

The Soldiers and Sailors Monument at Garfield Square was sculpted by an artist named August Zeller in 1889. • Article
