Civil War Monument and Cannons
This red granite Civil War monument, dedicated to the memory of GAR Wisner Post #127 in 1927 , has names of 188 veterans inscribed. Two 24 pounder flank howitzers, M1844, are on each side of the monument. Both howitzers were manufactured at West Point Foundry in 1858. These are located at a nice new location on the SE corner of the Courthouse Square. My photo on 10/9/17 has an unfortunate reflection so I have left a photo taken 10/26/07 at the old location which shows the inscription much clearer.
