Midwest Snapshots: Fort Jefferson Memorial Cross

Thanks to Emily Akin, freelance writer, blogger, and editor, for this photo of the Fort Jefferson Memorial Cross which is located on the Great River Road near Wickliffe, Kentucky. Though the Midwest doesn’t include Kentucky, we’re making an exception for this photo because the cross is  “tall enough to be seen from the states of Missouri, Illinois and Kentucky” (Great River Road website).

The cross, which is lit at night, is located near the confluence of the Mississippi and Ohio Rivers and is a Lewis and Clark Expedition historic site.
