St. Charles Battle Monument
The St. Charles Battle Monument was financed and erected through the efforts of a Civil War casualty's relatives in Arkansas. It reflects the public perception of the noble character and valor of the soldiers who fought the war. It is also one of only a handful of monuments in the state that commemorate both Union and Confederate dead. It commemorates the fallen soldiers of the Battle of St. Charles where the single most deadly shot of the Civil War was fired into the boiler of a Union gunboat, the Mound City, killing or injuring most of the crew. Listed on the National Historic Register May 3, 1996.
