One of the projects Edward was assigned was a statue of a Civil War soldier, likely an order placed by the G.A.R. As work progressed and he started on the rather delicate carving of the cap's visor, disaster struck. A flaw in the granite, a slip of a tool, an accidental hit - we'll never know for certain - but a piece broke off, and the statue was ruined. The big block of granite was hauled outside and Edward began anew.
