At the center of this Civil War andWWI memorial is a re-creation of a sculpture originally created byItalian Sculptor Guissepe Morietti in 1929. The original was destroyedby a tornado in 1972. With theAmerican Civil War not a too distant memory, Mr. Morietti's inspirationfor creating the memorial was rooted in an understanding of what thelong term impact of a divided Union and Confederacy would have meant tothe course of World Order during and after World War One.
Whilethe memorial pays tribute to a significant Civil War battle, it moreimportantly celebrates the men who lost their lives to help createthese United States of America.
