Wisconsin's Civil War Memorials
Simmons Library Park, Kenosha

To commemorate the centennial of Abraham Lincoln's birthday, this bronze and granite scultpure by Charles Niehaus was dedicated in 1909 in Simmons Library Park. The monument cost $6,000 and was given to the city by Orla M. Calkins. Unfortunately, Calkins died before seeing the monument dedicated.

On Memorial Day 1927, the last five Kenosha Civil War veterans posed with the sculpture.
