How does someone who barely completed high school take on the monumental task of etching out three historical figures from the Civil War? This book will tell you how this man went above and beyond the vision that God gave him – worked day and night and sometimes seven days a week – until the job was finished.
This strong and determined man with a PURPOSE – that made sacrifices not only with his own life but with his family, too – built a historical monument that the world has come to love and enjoy.
“I learned to have perseverance from my dad at an early age, just as he learned it from his family,” states the author. “See it through to the very end. Commitment and determination brings out the character in a person helping them to achieve their goals. Never give up even through trials and tribulations.”

She is truly proud of him and wants him to receive the recognition that he so deserves. She wants readers to know that this strong and determined man made many sacrifices so others could enjoy a magnificent masterpiece – created from one man's love for his southern heritage as well as the love he acquired for the confederacy.
