Monument and Cannon at Courthouse
This monument was constructed in 1869 and is one of the oldest in the state. The bronze tablets were attached in 1927. About 300 CW veterans in the area are listed on the tablets with many from the 6th and 36th Iowa Infantry Regiments and the 3rd Iowa Cavalry. The cannon is a 12 pounder bronze Napoleon, M1857, cast at Henry N. Hooper and Co. Since my previous visit in 2014, the cannon was moved to a concrete slab by the monument and a new carriage was built. This was a major improvement. Photos taken 9/25/18. The last photo is a copy of an old undated postcard provided by Danny Krock.
