Description:

The Soldiers and Sailors Monument in Indianapolis, Indiana stands as a towering tribute to the soldiers and sailors from the state who served in the American Civil War. Completed in 1901, the Neoclassical monument features a bronze statue of "Victory" atop its 284-foot structure, along with sculptures and reliefs depicting scenes from various wars. Serving as a memorial for conflicts beyond the Civil War, it houses the Colonel Eli Lilly Civil War Museum and an observation deck for visitors. This iconic landmark is not only a symbol of Indiana's historical contributions to the nation's wars but also a testament to unity, sacrifice, and the enduring memory of those who served.
