Several of the proposed designs are missing. Most of the proposals are written descriptions. Some sketches are included.

The designs are written descriptions of what the proposed monument will look like. One submission includes drawings. Several of the proposed designs are missing including those of Martin Milmore, the eventual winner of the competition.

The records of the committee on the laying of the cornerstone of monument of 1871 include orders, correspondence, news clippings, miscellaneous records, and lists of invited guests.

The records of the committee on the dedication of monument of 1877 include orders, correspondence, miscellaneous records, requests for payments, invoices, plans, invitations, tickets, list of invited guests, and programs.

The oversized material includes plans of formation and procession, platforms, and seats. The artifacts include two badges worn by City Council members and members of the Grand Army of the Republic (G.A.R.) at the dedication ceremony.  Read more...
