Civil War Monument
This very attractive monument is located in the Grant Cemetery. It is a 15 foot granite obelisk dedicated in 1908. Inscriptions include mention of the GAR Post and the Ladies of the GAR Circle. There is also a Veterans Monument. Nearby are benches dedicated to Veterans. Many gravesites of CW Veterans are in the area of the Monument. The Cemetery is located just west of the town of Grant (named for General U. S. Grant) and on the west side of Highway 71. The Monument is on the north side of the Cemetery. Photos taken 8/19/14. Thank you to SUVCW members Jim Braden and Mike Carr for notification of this Monument.
