Inscription. In 1914, two four-inch naval cannon barrels, each with a pyramid of balls, were placed on the courthouse grounds as a tribute to all Brown County citizens who served their nation in time of conflict. The United States Government reclaimed them in 1942, during World War II, for use as scrap iron.

In October, 1977, these five-inch naval cannon barrels, similar to those erected in 1914, were placed here to serve again as a memorial to all men and women of Brown County who served the nation with sacrifice and valor in time of armed conflict.
