Civil War Memorial, Greenwood Cemetery

In memory of the soldiers from Sharpsburg and Etna and the surrounding area. The statue is typical of this sort of memorial: not exactly crude, but not subtle. The monument was erected by a post of the Grand Army of the Republic named for General George A. Custer, whose later reputation tends to obscure his successes in the Civil War.
