Nathan and Sharon Pennington pose in front of the replica of the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier that Nathan recently completed for a group in Tulsa, Okla. A steady stream of residents stopped to view the piece in front of the courthouse on Saturday before it was moved west, getting to see sides of the tomb not normally visible in Arlington National Cemetery, including the relief of Peace, Victory, and Valor behind them.

The Cornersville resident, who works for a company creating theme park, museum, and church displays and scenery, was commissioned to do the life size replica, which weighed roughly 1,500 pounds and took five months to construct.
