Littleton Brothers Monument
This impressive monument was dedicated June 14, 2016 to the memory of the six Littleton Brothers who lost their lives in the Civil War. They perished due to death in battle, illness, accident and as prisoner of war. The monument is black granite and about 11 feet in height. The front has an etching representing the brothers, Thomas, William, George, John, Kendall and Noah. The back side has a history of the brothers and their family. The left side lists the brothers and their regiments. The final photo shows members of the Iowa 49th regiment who served as the color guard at the dedication. Thanks to Tom Woodruff and Ed Bayne for uncovering this amazing story of the brothers and leading the effort to recognize them with this monument. It is located on Highway 99 at the entrance to the Toolsboro Indian Monument Historical Site, just outside the small town of Toolsboro.
