Veterans Memorial and Cannon
This Veterans Memorial has a monument with the Gettysburg Address and an eagle on top of a polished granite column. In a nearby location is a 24 pounder flank howitzer, M1844, cast at Cyrus Alger & Co. in 1863. These are in a wonderful location in Riverfront Park overlooking a lock on the Mississippi River. The park is just north of the business district. Photos taken 3/24/08 and 9/11/10.
