2. City of Loyal, Wisconsin. "Loyal was so named because of the patriotic nature of the men of the pioneer town who went off to protect the Union during the Civil War in the 1860s.... [The Veterans Memorial] was inspired by the 2001-2002 eighth grade class, and funded by the sale of engraved memorial bricks." (Submitted on November 15, 2011.)
