Civil War Memorial
PRINT THIS INFORMATION
This memorial is in the Union Cemetery in Newton. It was dedicated in 1930. Thank you to Steve Hanken for notification of this monument and sending the photo. It is difficult to find - after going through the main entrance, turn right or north and the monument is about half way between the road and the large Maytag Mausoleum.
There is a large veterans section in the Cemetery. Also shown is a veterans memorial dedicated to all veterans. There is also a similar monument to POW’s and a rock monument in the background of the photo dedicated to unknown soldiers. There are 254 Union soldiers buried here. Union Cemetery is in the NW corner of Newton on W 4th St. N. The veterans monument photo was taken 11/2/07.
