Soldiers and Sailors Monument
The Soldiers' and Sailors' Monument was erected in downtown Indianapolis in 1902. It was originally designed to commemorate the Hoosiers in the Civil War but expanded to include soldiers who served in the Revolutionary War, the War of 1812, and the Mexican War as well. In addition to the statue of Victory atop, the monument is surrounded by several famous sculptural groups. Over the years, the monument has become a symbol of the city and even the state of Indiana at large.
