A Crucifix at the Crossroad

January 1956
New Republic;1/2/56, Vol. 134 Issue 1, p14
The article focuses on the religious angle given to the dedication of a war memorial in Hammond, Indiana. Within two days of its erection the Ministerial Association for Greater Hammond and a similar group in nearby Whiting, Indiana, had petitioned the trustees to have the memorial removed from the park. The Protestant, Jewish and Eastern Orthodox clergymen who put forward these resolutions denied that the monument could honor the fallen heroes of their respective faiths. And it was only meant to be a monument for the war heroes.
