Located at the square of Allentown, this wonderful monument is hard to miss and is a nice tribune to soldiers who fought for this country. However it is surrounded by intersections that usually require the usage of a crosswalk to get close.

If you go downtown Allentown, it's hard to miss this monument. It sits right in the center of Hamilton Street. Sadly, it's surrounded by the street & traffic signals, so there's not much room to get closer to it.

This is a beautiful old monument, which is a great part of history. The city decorates this monument for holidays. It is right in the heart of the newly restored area of Allentown.

This is a unique monument to our Civil War veterans. Allentown has a proud history in the Civil War, sending some of the first Federal troops to defend DC right after the firing on Fort Sumpter. Additionally, these troops were the ones subjected to assault...More
