Civil War Monument
This monument is in Evergreen Cemetery in Emmetsburg. The inscription on the upper portion reads, "GAR To Our Unknown Dead." The lower inscription is a Latin quotation, "Dum Tagent Clamant," meaning their silence speaks louder than words. Thank you to SUVCW member Don McGuire for notification of the monument and for the photo. The cemetery is located just south of town off Highway 4 - take the main entrance and the monument is straight ahead. The first photo was taken 10/20/17 - the close-up photos were taken 9/18/18.
