Tombstone Tuesday – Clinton Iowa War Memorials

Clinton War Memorial Iowa

Jim’s home town of Clinton, Iowa has a very nice display of war memorials for the most recent wars: Civil War, WWI, WWII, Korean and Vietnam.  The Civil War era memorial is for William B. Mayes who enlisted in DeWitt, Iowa and was born in Ohio.  He was a Medal of Honor Recipient and was in Company K, 11th Iowa Infantry.  He was at the Battle of Kenesaw Mountain, Georgia.  His memorial stone is also in this group of photos.
