This is where I got all my guesses (it was at the top of my Google search)

http://www.chs.org/f.../ransom/004.htm

1: It was erected to "Commemorate The Death Of Those Who Perished In Suppressing The Southern Rebellion."

2: Erected shortly before its dedication, which was held on July 28, 1863 (I think this was a trick question)

3: Located in a churchyard.

4: Corner of Sheldon Ave. and Percival St., Kensington, Conn.

5: Kensington Congregational Church

6: The 3" bore cannon was placed there in 1913

Thanks Ron, for the generous prize of $150 for the first 100 points.

Jim,

Yes, this should be quiz #14, and you get 5 points for noticing the number.

As to the 125 points for correct answers for a 150 point prize, well that is a slight technicality. Ran out of questions to ask.

Mr Smith

Having trouble verifying your information, get back later.

Ron,

For discovering your "slight technicality" you should award me 20 more points, for a total of 25.

DK,

I'll sell you my points for a $1 a point, should Ron decide to do the honorable thing and give me the extra 20 pts.

Jim

The correct answer is the monument erected by Hazen's brigade for their fighting at the Battle of Stone's River. The brigade members built it in 1863 and is reported to be the first monument built in the US. The monument mentioned in Kenningston CN seems to has unresolved questions about it. I believe it was moved from its first location.
