A Town Remembers–-Tallapoosa GA
There may be 1,000 Miles of American highway called Veterans Memorial, but few towns along those miles have done a better job of remembering.
As Georgia 100 leaves the center of town, a gentle left creates a triangular park. The flags were flying all down the street and a sidelong glance convinced us we had passed something important. It took a few miles to get turned around and parked beside the Tallapoosa MEDAL OF HONOR PARK
The tiny park commemorates the dead from every American conflict and names each fallen soldier from the county. There is a Vietnam tribute to two (of nine) fallen, one black and one white.
The Twin Towers stand in black Marble beside an artifact from the rubble.
