Civil War Soldier in Cemetery
This is an impressive monument of granite with a bronze soldier holding a flag. It is about 20 feet high. It was dedicated in 1907 by the GAR and WRC. It is located in Evergreen Cemetery, 1800 N 8th Street, on the east side of Red Oak. Take 8th Street south off Highway 34. At the main entrance go straight east to the monument. Photo taken 10/15/17. Also note the sword in the old photo - it is broken off in the recent photo. Thanks to David Shedlock for sending the old photo.
