Civil War Soldier
This 21 foot granite monument is in great condition. It was dedicated on Memorial Day, 1916 with many people attending the day long program. The cost of the monument was $1600. There continues to be a service each Memorial Day with the names of Veterans, including 66 CW Veterans, being read. The second photo, from the Cedar Rapids Gazette, shows the ceremony held on the 100th anniversary on Memorial Day, 2016. Thank you to Orlan Love for information about this monument. The cemetery is located on the north edge of town. The first photo was taken 3/25/08.
