In 1918, a concrete flag, placed on the north lawn of Courthouse Square during World War I, was dedicated by Veterans of the Civil War, Spanish American War and the WomenÕs Relief Corps (wives and daughter of Civil War veterans). The flag was created from a mold made by Anthony Munich, father of Anna Barsalou of Kankakee. The inscription on a plaque reads: Dedicated to the brave men who have gone forth to preserve for the present and future generations the flag we so dearly love. The base of the plaque was replaced in 2005 due to deterioration.
