Iowa Civil War Monument - Lookout Mountain

The Iowa Monument is about halfway up the side of the mountain (About halfway between Point Park and the Tennessee River) just a little ways down from Craven's House. The monument commemorates the Iowan regiments that fought at the Battle of Lookout Mountain on Nov. 24, 1863. The impressive 50 foot Monument was dedicated November 19, 1906.
