Battle Monument

Battle Monument is a large doric column located on Trophy Point at the United States Military Academy, West Point, NY. It was designed by Stanford White and dedicated in 1897 to honor Civil War veterans. It is important to remember while touring West Point that many Civil War veterans from the Confederacy were West Point graduates and honored in addition to their Union Counterparts. The view from Trophy Point is amazing and often called The Million Dollar View.
