Recently, someone suggested there was a monument in Greenwood Cemetery connected to the Civil War. So, I checked. There is not.

However, there is one dedicated to the veterans of all wars as well as separate ones for each of the two major world wars in our history. This doesn’t surprise me since Indiana was the first state in the West to declare its allegiance to the Union at the beginning of the Civil War. (Even though, there would eventually be several intense political battles regarding the central issue of the war, that of slavery and emancipation.)
