Sylacauga’s Craigger Browne completes biggest sculpture to date

SHARE NOW

SYLACAUGA, Ala. – Sylacauga’s Craigger Browne has finished sculpting one of his biggest and most immaculate pieces to date. The project goes by multiple names, but one that stands out is “Valor Emerging.”

The sculpture is a beautiful masterpiece made out of Sylacauga’s beautiful white marble.

Browne completed this sculpture just days before Veterans Day. The sculpture features Captain Mortimer Jordan carrying a fallen soldier out of the battlefield during the Battle of Champagne in World War I. Capt. Jordan left his safety to rescue a wounded enlisted man who was 150 yards away. During a later battle, Capt. Jordan lost his life while performing another selfless act for his men.

The piece was made to commemorate the centennial anniversary of Mortimer Jordan High School, which is located in Kimberly, Alabama. The monument will be placed outside of Mortimer Jordan High School.
