Walking east toward the river, you'll find the The Iowa Monument.
The monument is 75 feet high and was placed on the battlefield in 1906. On the east side is the bronze sculpture, Fame. The female figure is twelve feet high and above her hand is the inscription:
Brave of the brave, twice five thousand men
Who all that day stood in the battle's shock,
Fame holds them dear, and with immortal pen
Inscribes their names on the enduring rock.
