Civil War showpiece restored (PA)





More than a century ago, thousands of Scrantonians gathered on Courthouse Square to dedicate the Soldiers and Sailors Monument, honoring those who lost their lives in the Civil War.

On Saturday, a crowd again gathered in front of the 104-foot-tall structure, this time for a rededication ceremony following $500,000 in restoration work.
