Nashville - World War Memorial

Most monuments are dedicated to some cause or another and the World War Memorial in Nashville is no exception. This monument was built in 1930 in dedication to the soldiers and sailors who are buried in the area. The monument was erected by the Mount Olivet Cemetery and can be found near the entrance of the Nashville Cemetery at 1101 Lebanon Pike.

A plaque which reads "This monument of granite is dedicated to the memory of the soldiers and sailors of the World War who sleep in Mt Olivet. The gratitude and devotion of the living will stand guard forever as loyal sentinels over these brave sons of freedom who gave their lives that liberty might live" is what makes this monument very moving.

Although this monument is privately owned, it attracts many visitors throughout the year. The summer months in Nashville can be quite warm, so spring time is the best time to visit. However, if you happen to be there in the summer then late evening or early morning is the most beautiful time to go and pay your respects to the fallen soldiers.
