1. Civil War Monument Marker
Inscription.

A similar marble shaft was erected and dedicated on May 5th 1880 at the Hamilton County Courthouse. In 1894 a fire destroyed the original courthouse. During demolition the marble shaft was crushed by falling debris. After 117 years, invisible from public view, it has been reestablished to be dedicated this day, July 4, 2011

[Monument reads]
"In memory of our fallen heroes
in unknown graves
- gone but not forgotten -
they died that our country
might live -
Our Country and Our Flag"

Loyalty - Fraternity - Charity
1861 - 1865
