The Soldiers Memorial - Lincoln University, Jefferson City, MO
The Soldiers Memorial is installed on the Campus Main of Lincoln University, a historical Black College in Jefferson City, MO. Lincoln University was originally founded by a group of Black Civil War Soldiers. This memorial honors their foresights and vision, featuring Two Soldiers and Capt. Foster, their white commander atop the pedestal, plus a soldier to the rear assisting other soldiers in their climb to academic excellence. This is enhanced by a bas relief group of soldiers awaiting matriculation and two additional soldiers in full garb trudging across the campus heading to their destiny.
The memorial was unveiled in 2007.
