By and large the crosses in question were placed on public land long before anyone ever imagined it would ever be an issue. It wasn't that long ago that expressions of faith were not only acceptable, but welcome. We never have had or will have a federal church. Nobody is suggesting that the First Baptist Church (or any other) on 1st and Kitchewa Street in Anytown USA be declared our federally established church. Early in our history several states had established churches, but that went away. Don't ever forget that the same provision in the Bill of Rights also bans government from prohibiting the free expression of religion. No caveats as to time, manner, or place.
