Long Description:
Located within Riverside Park are two Civil War monuments located out in an open, grassy area. This particular monument contains a concrete base with a plaque that reads:

IN MEMORY OF

UNION VETERANS
OF THE
1861 CIVIL WAR 1865
ERECTED 1936 BY
SONS OF UNION VETERANS
OF THE CIVIL WAR
DAUGHTERS OF UNION VETERANS
OF THE CIVIL WAR

Unfortunately, the flagpole that was mounted on the concrete base has rotted away and been removed. I'm assuming it was made of wood.

There's a web link to this monument as a Historical Landmark and can be viewed here.

Date Installed or Dedicated: 1/1/1936

Name of Government Entity or Private Organization that built the monument: Sons of Union Veterans of the Civil War & Daughter of Union Veterans of the Civil War
