To see what was left of the marker

Last week I reported that the historical marker for the Cane Creek Massacre had gone missing. Well, here is what is left. And soon even that will be gone. The Tennessee Department of Transportation is goin to remove the pole and someday, but not this year, it will get replaced.

To give you an idea of scale the post is about 4 inches thick. The sign was made of cast iron, and appears to have been snapped off with a considerable amount of force.

Thanks for the illustrated update, Bruce. It's hard to believe that something requiring this much effort was run-of-the-mill juvenile vandalism.
