She was the mother of three soldiers killed in the Civil War. An iron fence was to be placed around the monument, but due to lack of funds the fence was installed a year or two later. The base of the monument is one piece of limestone that came from the local quarry. The soldier standing on top of the Monument came from Italy. The iron fence was removed in 1902 when the traction line was installed through Pleasant Hill. The Monument still stands as a memorial to those heroes who died serving their country.
