Joan's lost cause
By Robert M. Rosenblatt
I was touched by Margaret A. Morrison’s May 29 letter about the missing sword on the statue of Joan of Arc in Meridian Hill Park. I’ve lived in Adams Morgan since 1966 and have visited that park frequently. Like Ms. Morrison, I greatly admired its Joan of Arc statue. When I visited the park shortly after the 1968 riots that followed the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., I was saddened to see that Joan’s sword had been broken off the statue and removed. I’ve always hoped the statue would be repaired, but after 42 years, I’m beginning to doubt that will happen.
