The Veteran's Square Civil War Monument in downtown Carlisle is located on the square. The monument was dedicated in 1871 in honor of the men from Cumberland County that died during the Civil War.  The names listed are those who died during battle, from wounds, or diseases contracted while serving during the war.  The Soldier’s Monument Association began in January 1867 to begin raising funds for a monument.  Many several Civil War veterans were active within the association.  The association invited everyone in the county to join including young and old, men and women.
