Sculptor Uses Statues To Tell Story Of America’s Birth

WARWICK, Pa. (CBS) – A Bucks County artist and sculptor has plans to tell the story of America’s birth in a rather unique way: with statues of historic figures.

Gregory Marra says he has the ear of local lawmakers in Bucks County about somehow connecting the dots of American history with a Revolutionary War Trail that would feature bronze statues of the key players in the birth of a nation. He fears the historic events of the Revolutionary War period are being lost and the trail would preserve the area’s unique history and boost tourism.

“If you don’t make a proper tribute, especially in bronze which is eternal, it really makes it hard for people to move forward in history in a healthy and spiritual way.”

Marra will showcase some of his work tomorrow night at the historic Moland House in Warwick and a portion of the night’s proceeds will go toward his first statue of General Marquis de Lafayette.

He says he has the go-ahead to put it at the Moland House if he can raise $60,000 to fund it.
