"Billy Yank" Replica Civil War Memorial, Hackettstown, NJ





Originally built closeby, "Billy Yank" -- not a particularly unique name for a Civil War Memorial Statute, was placed on Main Street at a cost of 30,000 pennies slowly collected by area school children. The statue stood unmolested for decades until eminent domain compelled the removal of the original statue. Instead of being moved, the statue was taken down and apparently sold for scrap.

Placed in 2001, this replica recreation pays tribute to the rank and file Union soldier colloquially referred to as "Billy Yank"
