Restored "Peace," 2010

October 8, 2010 marked the re-installation of the restored Peace bust in the American Legion Peace Garden. Careful restoration revealed a beautiful pink/orange Tennessee granite with black veins running through it. This differs from the white granite mentioned in historical sources. F. Buddie Contracting of Cleveland did the restoration work. This involved not only cleaning the granite but also making a new nose, and patching the crown/laurel wreath as well as the shallow holes on the face and neck.
