Civil War Monument and Cannon
This is a very attractive 18 foot monument in the SE corner of Pella’s town square, erected in 1911. The statue is said to represent Captain Albert Hobbs of Pella who was killed at Shiloh on April 6, 1862. The GAR post was named Albert Hobbs Post #404. A 155mm Japanese howitzer Type 4 is near-by. I formerly lived in Pella and remember well playing on this cannon as I was growing up. Monument photo taken 9/29/07 and cannon photos taken 5/10/09. The close-up photos were taken 9/25/18.
