Miller Park is the home of an amazing Civil War Memorial Cenotaph.
There are also World War 2, Korean War and Vietnam War Cenotaphs.
The memorial to World War 1 is a bit more subjective as it consists of
a WW1 M1917 6 Ton Light Tank, produced by Van Dorn Iron Works,
Maxwell Motor Co. & C.L. Best Co.Of the 950 produced, only 10 made
it to Europe before the Armistice and none saw combat. It was a new
American design of the French Army Renault FT-17.
Armament: 37MM Cannon
Crew: 2
Also included in the WW1 exhibit/memorial is an unidentified German
Field Artilery Piece from World War 1.
