GAR Section Linwood Cemetery
This is a wonderful little corner of the cemetery with two large Parrott cannons, a granite monument, a bronze plaque and tombstones of Civil War veterans. The cannons are 4.2 inch, 30 pounder Army Parrott rifles cast at the West Point Foundry - one in 1863 and one in 1864. This area is located in the NW corner of a large cemetery. Take Monona Street south off Mamie Eisenhower Avenue or take Forest off S Greene St. to the Cemetery. The first 2 photos were taken 10/25/07 and the photo of the plaque was taken 7/12/2017.
