these 5"/38 naval gun turrets were emplaced at Ft. Stevens, at the mouth of the Columbia River, to guard the river entrance during WWII. now they are part of Ft. Stevens state park, and serve as a silent reminder that freedom is never free... 30D with Tamron 24-135 @ 24mm, 1/160 @ f9...

indeed...freedom might be thethe very thing whose cost is the most expensive!

Btw, your title reminded me some lines from Poe's 'coliseum'

Here, where a hero fell, a column falls!
Here, where the mimic eagle glared in gold,
A midnight vigil holds the swarthy bat!
