Soldiers Monument Association

Dates of Oquawka Spectator abstracts.

Plan for the organization of the Henderson county Soldier's Monument Association

Published September 15, 1864

(Start of article missing)

Old and young, high and low, rich and poor, father and son, mother and daughter, the people all, we summon to this great memorial task. Those in the ranks of the armies of the Republic would impress upon the minds of our citizen friends somewhat of that faith and hope which stirs them in behalf of this cherished labor of commemoration. This is to be no failure, but, on the other hand, a great and enduring success. In the proportion that our members are depleted, will our interest in the object nearest our heart's strengthen and deepen. Let us do our duty. Let the marble rise."
