A crowd gathers for the rededication of Cleveland's 125-year-old obelisk memorial to Will Steed, John Hardwick and Will  Marshall, all prominent citizens who lost their lives in a train wreck at Thaxton, Va. on July 2, 1889. The landmark, which has been at its current home at the crossways between Ocoee and Broad streets just over 100 years ago, was recently repaired after the 6,000-pound monument was damaged in a late April car accident.
