The Shop Around the Corner

This, too, is Laurens, SC, and it's courthouse on the square. Rising high above all else in the dead center of the square is a monument to the Confederate dead. It's placement assures that future generations will know something of an honored past.

They're fixing up the parking lot and repouring the sidewalks to spruce up this important space in the life of Laurens. This is literally just around the corner from the shop pictured above, but figuratively it's light years away.

Here, that same war is clearly over, past, but remembered in a somewhat different manner.
