MAURY COUNTY - MEMORIAL - THOSE THAT PAID WITH THEIR LIVES

 
An area view of the memorial to the War dead of Maury County located across from the James Knox Polk ancestral home, the 11th president, in Columbia Tennessee. Picture yourself standing in the left front of the column on your right. On your left is the left flank and on your right is the right flank. Listed on the left flank on the side facing you is the names of the War of 1812, Mexican American War & part of the Civil War. The right flank on the side facing you contains the rest of the names of those who died in the Civil War. On the right flank on the side away from you contains the names of the World War I & II, Korean War and the Persian Gulf War of 1992. I do not pretend to have captured the essence of this memorial. You will have to personally visit there for that. If you are aware of the memorial stone contractor please notify this site of that information so that we may present it here with the date.
