Lawrenceburg’s forgotten monument

The town square in Lawrenceburg has one of the state’s rarest memorials–the Mexican War monument, one of only two such monuments in Tennessee built soon after hostilities ended in 1848. Over 20 years ago Jennifer Martin worked with me to place this unique obelisk and rest of the town square into the National Register as the Lawrenceburg commercial historic district.
