Cass County/Lady Liberty Monument
PRINT THIS INFORMATION
This is an impressive 62 foot monument with four bronze soldiers and sailors and bronze plaques listing Cass County veterans. Lady Liberty sets on top of the monument. Unfortunately, she lost her shield and had to be taken down to have the shield re-attached. To commemorate this and other restoration work, there was a re-dedication of the monument on 7/13/13. The photo shows Lady Liberty with the shield attached - this and other photos were taken at this re-dedication. Included are members from the Kinsman and Kirkwood SUVCW Camps in Atlantic and Council Bluffs who conducted the ceremony. The original dedication was July 10, 1919 - the poster from that ceremony is shown. The monument commemorates veterans from the Civil War, Spanish-American War and WWI. There is also a more modern Veterans Monument. The location is in a park south of the business district and off Highway 6. Photos taken 7/13/13 and 8/19/14.
