MAURY COUNTY - MEMORIAL - THOSE THAT PAID WITH THEIR LIVES

 
This is an area view of the memorial to the War dead of Maury County located on the grounds of the Maury County Court House in middle Tennessee. This important historic monument was moved a couple of years ago from the grounds across from the James Knox Polk ancestral home, the 11th US president, to the present place here at the Court House Grounds. Picture yourself standing at the pivot point in front of the column. 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, Vietnam War and the Persian Gulf War of 1992. Notice on our right the two young lads standing in front of the trunk of the oak tree. Seated on the retaining wall is Ethan Ingram and behind him is Andrew Gray the son of the photographer Rick Gray.
