A monument commemorating both sideswas erected in the early 20
th
Century by the son of the Irish born master of the
Mound City
, William Hickman Harte. The names of the dead are engraved on the granite shaft, which stands in the middle of Main Street. Also in St. Charles are both of the 32 pounder rifles brought in by Lieutenant Dunnington. After the battle the Federal troops pushed both guns into the river, they were retrieved just after the First World War.(Henderson 1957) Both the Monument and the Battery sites are on the National Register. A museum located in the City Hall tells the story of the battle and the history of St. Charles.
