    Love the monument. A very important and educational venue. So well organized and constructed. Really pulls you in to a different time. Emphasis on the river process is sobering on time relation with Pleistocene drainage and runoff through Texas. Bound to be part of other contemporary graveyards in the area. Keep up the great work.
