Oldest Civil War Memorial Moved To Museum

A nearly 150 year old Civil War memorial has been moved to a new home in the Frazier International History Museum.    Known as the “Bloedner Monument,”  it has spent most of its years in Cave Hill National Cemetery, but was moved indoors recently because of weather-related deterioration.

It was created by Union Private August Bloedner to honor his fellow soldiers killed in the Battle of Rowlett’s Station near Munfordville, Kentucky in December of 1861.
