The Portland Civil War Monument gives honor to the 4 thousand men from Portland who enrolled in the Army and Navy for the War of the Rebellion.

On the monument, one can see a heroic-sized female standing upon a granite base. On the north and south of the base, two other smaller sculpture groups are erected. The larger figure stands for union and victory as she stands while dressed in a classical grab. On her right hand, she is holding a sword that is wrapped in a flag. On the other, a branch of maple leaves and a shield are firmly held. Bronze figures are also situated on top of the granite blocks. Among them are three sailors standing in front of 6 flags, and three army figures on the other side also standing in front of the flags.

The Monument was erected in 1929.
