Mahoning Valley Monuments Honoring Veterans
YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio – Amid the traffic of Central Square in downtown, shrouded by trees that have grown up around it over 150 years, The Man on the Monument statue stands guard.
The Man on the Monument is not alone. Monuments honoring veterans and memorializing those who died during times of war can be found throughout the Mahoning Valley.
“Just because we may not necessarily remember it’s here doesn’t mean that it’s not still significant,” says Amy Fluker, an associate professor of U.S. history at Youngstown State University.
