What is up with Old Fashion Stuff Being “Erected?” Why Can’t They Just Say “Built??”

Hello fellow living organisms!

I went on my last field trip at my school EVER!!! We went to the Carter House and the Carnton Plantation. It was the most interesting field trip so far this year…

But they had a Confederate Soldier/Family/Slave graveyard. And guess what it said on about 1/2 of the family tombstones???

If you guessed “Date Erected,” YOU GUESSED RIGHT!!!!!!!!!!!!!”

Like, come on! Why are all these old fashioned people’s stuff saying DATE ERECTED!!!!!!!!!

 

What the !&#^*#@ $*)#&*(*&^%$#@!#$%^&*(%???????????????????????????

 

Oh well,

❤ naomi
