Illinois Korean War Memorial

This octagon granite memorial monument erected in 1996 is located within the historic Oak Ridge Cemetery, very close to Abraham Lincoln’s tomb. Dedicated to the martyrs who lost their lives, all the names of 1,752 Illinois war veterans killed in action are specifically engraved on the granite walls along with relative quotes from each branch of the Armed Forces.
