VINCENNES, Ind. — The staff at a southwestern Indiana memorial to Revolutionary War figure George Rogers Clark is drafting a plan that will drive repairs at the monument for decades to come.Superintendent Frank Doughman says that after five years of nearly non-stop work and several million dollars spent, the staff is pausing to determine what should come next at the George Rogers Clark National Historical Park.

Doughman tells the Vincennes Sun-Commercial (http://bit.ly/1o5Kwmc ) it will cost about $75,000 to develop a long-range plan for maintaining the memorial.

He says the plan will determine what the immediate needs are for the memorial, which opened along the Wabash River in Vincennes in the 1930s.

The memorial honors Clark, an American colonel who led forces to defeat the British at Fort Sackville in Vincennes in 1779.
