Recognized as one of the world's outstanding monuments, the structure has come to symbolize both the City of Indianapolis and the state of Indiana. The Soldiers & Sailors Monument is Indiana's official memorial to the Hoosiers that served in the Revolutionary War, the War of 1812, the Mexican War, the Civil War, the Frontier Wars and the Spanish-American War.
|Description||This is the largest outdoor memorial and first monument in the United States to be dedicated to the common soldier. This grand monument attracts Hoosier natives and visitors all year round. The brick-paved streets on Monument Circle are surrounded by restaurants, local businesses and office spaces. It is a relaxing space and great for sitting on the Monument's steps or going inside the Monument to overlook the city from the observation deck. The Indiana War Memorials Commission manages the monument grounds. For more information on rental of the streets and sidewalks surrounding the monument see: Monument Circle|
