Much later, after the ceremony was over and most people had left. I wasn't taking photos during the dedication itself, nor was Trent. I thought that I had collected different shots of the crowd, as the attendees came quite spread out and left over time, too. Now I see that I did not capture many different angles of the crowds and none of all the attendees after all.

The guy in the blue shirt is Trent Pendley. The guy in the straw hat is John Davies from the N.W. Ind. Wall of Legends, with an interest in info about all of northwest Indiana's existing state historical markers.

The guy there from Dunes State Park parked his truck through the ceremony to keep passing traffic away from the crowd of attendees milling around.
