Unknown Soldier Civil War Monument
This 4 foot monument was erected by the WRC in 1904. There is an unusual wooden flagpole behind the monument. The Carson Cemetery is just east of town. The monument is the first stone to the right after entering the cemetery from the Carson Avenue entrance - not the Highway 59 entrance. Thanks to Mike Carr for information about this monument and other monuments in this region. Photo taken 9/1/08.
