The American Civil War Memorial

The American Civil War Memorial pays tribute to the sacrifice made by citizens of Waterloo during the Civil War, and recognizes the soldiers from the North and the South who gave their lives in the conflict. The Civil War exacted a great toll on the American people; it was one of the most arduous times in our history when more lives were lost than in all our other wars combined. The Memorial, designed by sculptor Pietro del Fabro of Princeton Junction, New Jersey, is located in Lock Park along the Cayuga-Seneca Canal, part of the Erie Canal System. Pietro’s design incorporates the Memorial into the historic canal environment of Waterloo and provides a destination for visitors arriving from town, those hiking the recreational trails, and boaters cruising the inland waterway. The Memorial includes individual cenotaphs for each man from Waterloo who died in battle and a North South Cenotaph recognizing all lives lost in the war. The North South Cenotaph is constructed of stones sent from the 36 States which were in existence at the end of the Civil War.
