The memorial of the army correspondents Is a section of a wall like a portal with a tower and pier, resembling one of the gatee of the Alhambra. It has a horseshoe arch on the ground of sixteen feet height and span, made of brownish red Uummelstown stone. The shape of the arch gives the otherwise solid structure an Instep or bow peculiarly light and graceful. Three Raman-Gotharches above give a hearler Romanesque trinity of expression and are of gray limestone. All tha four arches reveal the scene and sky, as the edifice has no interior, being a facade, like the front of some cathedral altered from the Arabian and left standing like an admired fragment. The great arch typifies the horseshoe on which the correspondent sited to his work; the upper arches express' narration, picture and photograph.
