Civil War statue to be replicated, not repaired

LONGMONT — A statue of a Civil War soldier that was damaged by vandals will not be repaired.

The Mountain View Cemetery board has decided to replicate the statue instead.

The Longmont Times-Call reports the statue was broken and the stone head was severed when at least seven people went on a spree that damaged more than 100 headstones over the summer.
