Mechanicsville Things to Do: 4 reviews and 8 photos
This monument was erected by Charles Storke who was a veteran of the War Between the States at the Second Battle of Cold Harbor in 1864 to commemorate the 36th Wisconsin (needless to say union) Volunteer Infantry. Storke survived the losing battle, but he was a prisoner of war sent to Andersonville, South Carolina for the rest of the war. After the war, he went to university and moved west to found a newspaper. Many years later, he came back east to visit battlefields. He bought some land on which he built this monument in 1924. The monument listed all those from this infantry unit who were killed, wounded, or captured.
Directions: On Pole Green Road between the produce stand and Pole Green Elementary School.
