A large rural cemetery in the suburban hills north of the Allegheny, with a notable Civil War monument.

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.
