Soldiers' Monument

Posted by
Steven (Chicagoland, United States) on 7 January 2019 in Art & Design and Portfolio.

Erected in Grant Park in Galena, Illinois, Soldiers' Monument is inscribed with the following:

"To the Soldiers of Jo Daviess County who served in the War of the Rebellion 1861-1865"

There are circular tablets cut in high relief on each face of the obelisk. The reliefs depict General Grant, General Rawlins, the American Shield, and a soldier's cap resting on a pair of crossed bayonets. On each face of the obelisk there is a list of the names of Jo Daviess County soldiers who served in the Civil War, which totaled over 400 men.
