Paris Also Has Our Jeanne D’arc Statue – With Sword Intact!

Jeanne D’arc missing sword in Meridian Hill Park

I’ve always loved our Jeanne D’arc statue in Meridian Hill Park (You can learn about its history and dedication in 1922 here. I couldn’t believe it when I saw an exact copy in Paris. And their statue still has it’s sword!

I think attempts have been made in the past but any volunteers to work with the French Embassy to possibly get our sword restored? If so, send me an email at princeofpetworth(at)gmail
