Went here when we went to the Lynchburg museum. Several beautiful monuments here to see, and perhaps the veterans will be gathering to honor the fallen when you are there. Lots of steps if you don't mind the exercise. Beautiful!

This is a nice monument to honor Lynchburg veterans of various wars. There are many steps to climb between the monuments.

We were exploring Lynchburg on a cold January night and decided to check out the monument. There are over 130 steps, and at each landing is a different memorial to those who have served in different wars. Very informative, and a great memorial, with all...More
