Photo from the St. Marys Historical Society collection Pictured is a monument that was formerly located in the lawn of the Diamond from the veterans of the First World War saluting those who served in the Second World War. It was removed sometime in the 2000s.

Editor's note: This is the fifth in a series of articles from a presentation recently given by local historian Ray Beimel on the history of the Diamond.

There are a number of monuments on the Diamond, some of which are more well known than others. 
One lesser known monument is located on the flagpole at the top of the Diamond, and local historian Ray Beimel explained that he enjoys telling its story because it involves Franklin Roosevelt and Winston Churchill.
