Lynchburg Graffiti & Monument Terrace

1) Can you spot the "charming" graffiti in the photo?

2) At the end of the road is Monument Terrace.

"The inspiring rise of Monument Terrace commemorates Lynchburg citizens who fought and died in the Civil War, Spanish-American War, World Wars I and II, Korea, Vietnam and present day. At the base on Church Street stands the iconic doughboy statue. Many other sculptures and markers line the 139 steps and terraces all the way to the top, where the old Court House Museum stands on Court Street."

I thought that I've shown pictures from Monument Terrace but when I searched my blog I haven't. I know we've been up the steps and I took a few pictures. I'll have to search my archived photos for a couple to show you up close!
