Iowa Monument at the Sherman Reservation
This monument marks the spot of the farthest position of the Iowa 6th on its charge up Tunnel Hill on November 25, 1863. The 50 foot monument was dedicated on November 19, 1906. Regiments recognized were the Iowa 5th, 6th, 10th and 17th. This is on the north edge of Missionary Ridge. It is hard to find - there is a sign to the Sherman Reservation off Crest Road - follow a foot path to the top of the hill - go past the cannons to the Iowa Monument. Photos taken 10/1/08.
