Stacked Arms with Mortar Shells
PRINT THIS INFORMATION
This monument in Fairview Cemetery formerly had 6 foot muskets - also with a belt, canteen, cartridge box, and scabbard. The first photo taken 9/17/20 shows that the stacked arms are missing. The second and third photos taken 3/25/08 includes the stacked arms. These were damaged by a fallen tree branch but hopefully can be repaired and restored to the monument. There are also five mortar shells located on each corner. The cemetery is on the SW side of town off 220th Street.
