1. A little about the marker series:
On July 25-26, 1863, near the end of his Indiana-Ohio Raid, Confederate Gen. John Morgan's cavalry forces crisscrossed Jefferson County, Ohio. On the raid’s 50th anniversary, a Three Wars Celebration was held in Steubenville to honor Revolutionary War, Civil War and Spanish-American War soldiers. The Stanton Monument Association, originally formed to erect a statue of Lincoln War Secretary and Steubenville native Edwin Stanton (completed in 1911), organized the three-day 1913 extravaganza.
