Downtown Decatur

A good friend of mine told me that I made Decatur look too dreary with just pictures of the Staley plant in the last post. So here are some pictures I took walking downtown, around and about, and at the Juneteenth Festival.

Just so you know, the memorial statue is of Stephen Decatur, where Decatur gets its namesake. I was surprised reading the inscription, though. It says something to the effect, better that your country be in the right, but if not, my country right or wrong! (If you click on the picture and examine the larger version, you can actually read yourself what the inscription says.)
