The Union Soldier Statue/Monument in Romeo Cemetery

In multitudes of cities, towns, and villages throughout Michigan the Union soldiers who served their country are honored in local cemeteries with statues, memorials, and monuments. They not only pay tribute to those men who “put it all on the line” but they serve to remind us of what they did. In the historic Romeo Cemetery in Macomb County, Michigan there are over 100 Civil War Union military men laid to rest. Many different Michigan Civil War units are represented, including a few from out of state (New York, Iowa, Ohio, California, etc).  The Soldiers Monument was dedicated in 1900. It still stand tall and proud:
