This is the monument to George Rogers Clark and the other frontiersmen who secured the territory that includes modern day Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Wisconsin and part of Minnesota during the the American Revolution. Clark and a small band of men endured incredibly harsh conditions to make a surprise attack on the British Ft. Sackville near Vincennes, IN, in the winter of 1779. Franklin Delano Roosevelt dedicated this monument to Clark in 1936. It is currently undergoing renovations.
