A northeastern Ohio city that has been without its iconic Civil War statue for more than seven decades is getting a duplicate in time for the community's bicentennial celebration this year.
The Medina Gazette reports that the city of Sandusky loaned one its two statues of a boy with a boot to be used as a model for Wadsworth's new one.
Similar sculptures can be found in other locations around the world. The origins of the design aren't clear.
