Civil War Soldier
This is a nice 16 foot granite monument in the Lakeview Cemetery in Spirit Lake. It was erected by the Ladies Cemetery Association of Spirit Lake in 1910. Names of soldiers are inscribed on three sides of the monument, including 52 CW soldiers, two from the Mexican War and two from the War of 1812. Nearby is an unusual house-shaped World War I Memorial. The cemetery is just east of the junction of Highways 71 and 9. The monument is by the flagpole. Photos taken 4/23/08 and 7/31/10.
