Civil War Memorial to be Dedicated
The Civil War Memorial in Veterans Park is set to be dedicated tomorrow morning. The soldier on top of the statue has been turned around twice – now facing the original direction in which it was built. In all of the controversy surrounding the moving and rotating of the statue, it has never been formally dedicated.
At 10:45am Saturday morning, there will be a short ceremony to officially dedicate the memorial. There will also be Civil War reenactments and local historians to discuss the history of the war and the memorial itself.
