Long Description:

A bronze plaque inset into a pink granite stone. Can be found in the Hillcrest Cemetery just outside of Deer Lodge, Montana. While no date or name of who placed it is on the memorial, it is likely it was the GAR sometime around the beginning of the 20th century.

Detail

The 34 names listed on the plaque.

Detail 2

Inscription above the names, which makes one wonder whether the use of wooden tombstones which would rapidly degrade was practiced at the time.
