PRINT THIS INFORMATION
Over 700 men from Lucas County left to serve in the Civil War. 149 of them gave their lives and are shown on this impressive monument. There are a number of other monuments/memorials dedicated to Veterans from other Wars. Examples shown are a Purple Heart memorial and a replica of the bell from the USS Iowa. There are also plans to complete a Freedom Rock and a Mural dedicated to the War in the Pacific. Thank you to Earl Comstock for providing information about this wonderful Veterans Park which has been completed in recent years. The Lucas County Veterans Memorial Park Committee has the overall responsibility. The location is at 1023 Linden Avenue just SW of the Chariton business district. Photos taken 6/13/20.
