Canton’s Civil War monument is in the northwest corner of the cemetery across from 1 Huckleberry Hill. It was dedicated May 30, 1903 on Decoration Day (now called Memorial Day) and cost $675. A rusticated chunk of granite, it contains a bronze tablet listing thirty-nine sons of Canton who were killed in the war and whose bodies never came home for their final rest. The unveiling was attended by three to four thousand people.
