Civil War Soldier at Cemetery
This is an impressive monument at Oaklawn Cemetery. It is granite with what appears to be a soldier of marble. It is about 30 feet tall. It was dedicated in 1902. There is also a monument honoring fallen soldiers from all wars including William Layton, Company B, 4th Iowa Infantry Regiment from the Civil War. A non-Civil War cannon is located in front of the soldier. It is a 3.2 inch US M1897 field gun - thank you to Tom Batha for information about this cannon. The cemetery is north of town on Highway 59. Photos taken 9/1/08, 2/8/09, and 9/1/12. Thank you to Richard Hickman for the most recent photo of the soldier monument.
