Boulder Civil War Monument (Boulder, Colorado)


Life-sized granite statue of Union soldier standing at parade rest, holding the barrel of a rifle whose butt rests on the ground next to his right foot. The soldier wears a Union overcoat, cape, and kepi hat. The west-facing statue is mounted atop a granite obelisk, itself mounted on two shallow blocks of rough-hewn granite. The monument is located in front of the Boulder County Courthouse in a public park facing the Pearl Street pedestrian mall. A plaque at the eastern base of the monument marks a time capsule buried there on September 24, 1996, to be opened on September 24, 2096.
