VINCENNES, Ind. (WTHI) - The weather is finally nice enough for repair work at a Knox County monument.

Over the winter, the Sieur de Vincennes statue in Vincennes was vandalized.

A portion of the statue's sword was cut off.

Crews spent Wednesday working to replace the sword.

Local artist Bill Wolfe played a role in the restoration.
