Civil War Soldier
This is a 6 foot white bronze soldier on a 18 foot granite base in Mt. Hope Cemetery in Maquoketa. It was dedicated in 1891. There are also four cannon mounts (missing the cannons) around the monument. The cemetery is in the SE part of town. Turn east off South Main at Summit Street. Thanks to Steve Hanken for the excellent photo. Also thanks to Danny Krock for furnishing the copy of the undated postcard - note that two cannon are visible.
