The Battery F, 136th Field Artillery Memorial was presented in 1925 by the mothers of the 324 officers and men of this unit, which distinguished itself in World War I. The memorial is mainly of native rocks, with flagstone platform and limestone seat. The centerpiece (pictured here) is an artistic bronze panel, 8 by 4 feet, listing the battle honors and names of those commemorated beneath a representation of the battery in action.
