How many of the monuments are statues of Civil War soldiers?

0

This is by far the most popular type of monument. There are 78 of these including 50 in cemeteries and 24 on courthouse or town squares. Fayette County has 8, Taylor County has 8 and Jones Coiunty has 4 of these soldier monuments. Most all of the statues are similar with the soldiers at parade rest. The soldier was often made of bronze, white bronze/zinc or marble. Soldiers at Albia (Monroe County) and Chariton (Lucas County) are wearing a slouch hat and sack coat which was probably more typical of what the informal Iowa soldiers really wore. Most of these monuments were dedicated from 1900-1930.
