Civil War Monument
This is an attractive 25 foot monument on the SE corner of courthouse square in Chariton. It was erected in 1916 and has a GAR medal on the front. The Union soldier is dressed in sack coat and slouch hat. The second photo shows the GAR flagpole - note the "GAR" weather vane on top of the flagpole. Thanks to Jim Braden for notification of this and the photo which he took 5/4/12. The other photos were taken 10/20/07. Also updateed is an old undated postcard thanks to Danny Krock - note the cannons shown at lower left and right which are missing in more recent photos. The cannons were scrapped in World War II.
