This memorial is to soldiers who died from Yellow Spring Township. It is a 15 foot marble monument with soldier inscriptions on three sides. It was dedicated on July 4, 1866 and is in good condition considering its age. Kossuth is a small town less than a mile east of Mediapolis. Take Main Street and the monument is in a park just before you reach the cemetery. Photos taken 8/3/10.
