Snow Day, February 25, 2015.

"Mother of the South" pins the southwest corner of the Arkansas State Capitol grounds.

Unveiled in 1913.  This Monument to Confederate Women depicts a mother and daughter saying good-bye to their 16-year-old son and brother who is leaving to join his father in the fighting.

Note:  This vantage may give a false sense of distance. I used a mild telephoto, which compresses space. this statue is at least a 100 yards from the building.
