Other Perryville Monuments

Perryville doesn't have many monuments, which I expected since it is a state park and was not preserved during the time the veterans were alive. Only one monument is for a particular unit, Donelson's Brigade monument from yesterday's post. There is a general monument for the Union, one for the Confederates in the cemetery and then two that are for the armies.

The two for the armies are very similar to each other, due to the fact they were erected at the same time. Each shows the order of battle for that army at Perryville. Not exactly the most exciting stuff to put on a monument but I did find it useful when I was there.

The Confederate's:
The Union's:
The back of each monument has this plaque. This is the one from the Union monument.
