Memorial Day

I saw this memorial in my new home town of East Rochester and decided to put together some video in honor of our fallen soldiers.  There’s lots of bigger memorials in the area, but this one is so admirable precisely because of its modesty.  I hope I captured some of that in the video.  The song is “Was My Brother In the Battle,” a traditional Civil War era piece as sung by Kate and Anna McGarrigle for the Ken Burns Civil War PBS documentary, for those of you who can remember that far back.
