Civil War Soldiers and Sailors Monument in Milan, Ohio

The monument in honor of soldiers and sailors from Milan who served in the American Civil War was dedicated in the town square of Milan, Ohio on July 4, 1867. According to a Milan, Ohio website, the monument changed the area that had formerly been a hitching post area into a village park. The names of several Milan residents who served their country in the war are listed on the monument.
