The American Civil War was such an wide ranging conflict for the United States that every town had men that served. Thus many small towns sought to have a memorial. Some towns worried that not having such a statue would make them appear uncaring or ambivalent. Caseville’s soldier statue is a fitting tribute to those who fought in the bitter conflict.
