This was the year, 1886, that General John Hammond of Civil War fame erected a monument to his horse that carried him through 88 skirmishes and 34 battles in the South. The horse, named Pink, lived to be 31 years old. His monument, inscribed, is a twelve foot high gray column that stands facing the soldiers’ monument which is in the small park in the center of Crown Point. Look for it at the left side of the road going north.
