Inscription. In Eternal Memory of those from Lincoln and Logan County who served their country in all her wars, and of their Gold Star Mothers and Widows, we dedicate this park. From these grounds those who served entrained to answer their Countryís call.

In gratitude for those who were returned may future generations revere the devotion of those who made the Supreme sacrifice.

This monument was erected September 6, 1953 A. D. By the committee for the celebration of the first Centennial of Lincoln, Illinois, the first and only town named for Abraham Lincoln before he became president of the United States.

Beneath this stone we have placed the story of Lincolnís first one hundred years with the hope that it will be uncovered and honored on the Second Centennial, 2053 A. D.
