Ninety-nine years ago, just 5 days after his thirtieth birthday, James R. McConnell died in battle fighting for France in WW1. He flew with the Lafayette Escadrille.
The mural depicts the statue that was placed at McConnell's alma mater, the University of Virginia, in Charlottesville, VA.
I thought it was a good idea to paint a slice of history on a brick wall. Good job, Carthage!
