The monument to Fifth United States Artillery, Battery F is on the east side of Hancock Avenue in Ziegler’s Grove. (Tour map: Hancock Avenue at Ziegler’s Grove) The monument is the first of several relocated after the removal of the old Cyclorama Building. The monument had been moved some distance to the north when the building was built in the 1960’s, but has now been returned to its original location.
The battery was commanded by Lieutenant Leonard Martin, a Wisconsin graduate of West Point (USMA ’61).
