The General Buckner Monument

Surprisingly, the "Buckner Monument" isn't any of the fine stone and marble monuments errected on this site but rather its a simple bronze plaque attached to the large stone. Here in this photo, Ryukyu Mike gets a close up shot of the inscription. The larger and more ornate monuments at this site are dedicated to General Easley (not pictured) who replaced Buckner and others. Easely was killed in battle the very next day.
