The Cathedral is being renovated at my visit, and at first I thought this was moved here. But further observation says this has been here for some time. Note bricks at ground level deteriorating.

Many confuse history with fact, during the Revolutionary War this was not Indiana, but Virginia. George Rogers Clark fought for the Commonwealth of Virginia, and acquired, what is today, half of IL, half of IN, all of KY, for the Commonwealth.
