Civil War Monument in Cemetery
This monument is close to several CW tombstones in Pleasant Grove Cemetery (also called West Cemetery.) It is a 2 by 4 foot gray granite memorial. Old photos show a much larger memorial but it became dilapidated and was replaced with this one in 1983. This cemetery is on the west side of town – just north of Highway 92. It was difficult to find the monument in the cemetery – it is left or west of the main road through the cemetery – look at the GPS reading for help. The first two photos were taken 11/29/07 - the third photo is the back of the monument taken in 2012. Thanks to Steve Hanken for this photo.
