  • Marengo Cemetery (David Gebhard and Gerald Mansheim)

In addition to a nineteenth-century monument to Civil War soldiers, the cemetery contains a large Egyptian-style mausoleum. The center of this building has been projected forward to form a pylonlike entrance. Within this pylon gate are two columns in antis; above, sculptured in stone, is the usual winged motif.
