THE STORY: This medal commemorates the 100th Anniversary of the Dedication of two Civil War era cannons in the
Civil War Plot at Citizens Cemetery in Modesto. They were presented to the Grand Army of the Republic (GAR) and Grant
Post #9 at the cemetery on Memorial Day, May 30, 1907. The Stanislaus Civil War Association rededicated these cannons on
Memorial Day, May 30, 2007. The GAR Plot, the cannons, the obelisk, and head stones were restored in honor of all veterans
for this 100th anniversary.
