Cleveland's Civil War Soldiers and Sailors MonumentLibrary: Main Library
Public Square in downtown Cleveland was the site of President James A. Garfield's funeral in 1881, and since 1894 it has also been the location of the Soldiers and Sailors Monument. Made of polished black Quincy stone with six foliated bronze bands listing the 30 battles in which soldiers from Cuyahoga County fought, the monument is a must-see when visiting downtown Cleveland.
Location: James R. Garfield Room (Main - Lower Level)
