An article in an August, 1975, issue of the E-W gives us this information on the statue and the monument:
Remember the Civil War Soldiers?
"The Civil War veterans monument on the Garfield County Courthouse lawn was erected by the Grand Army of the Republic in 1905 to honor veterans who had moved to Garfield County. Because of this it is an unusual monument. The photo [above] shows it during the 1930's before the face was damaged and the soldier taken down, around 1940, according to Bob Beale who supplied the photo. The four sides each name veterans and their detachments. How many do you remember?
