Civil War Statue
Inscription on plaque reads:
"In memory of our Soldiers Dead"
It commemorates those who gave their lives for their country in the Civil War and the Spanish American War.
In 1975 another plaque was added with the names of the fallen soldiers from the First World War through Vietnam
In 1996 the American Legion Emil Jacob #`117 Post of Manchester restored the monument due in large to the deteriorating condition of the base. Funds were raised by the American Legion through their pancake breakfasts, added to the balance of funds from the Village of Manchester 125th anniversary celebration and a donation from the Manchester Area Historical Society.
