Preserving an 1869 monument dedicated to Civil War casualties
Badger Contracting Inc of S WI is proud to have helped restore this 1869 historical, marble Civil War monument for the Delavan Historical Society. The monument was moved in order to replace the crumbling slab foundation. In addition to donating a portion of services to the project, Badger constructed new sidewalks, landscaped the area, and installed benches and plaques. Badger Contracting ensured great care with this along with all projects. See a video of the move as well as some pictures below.
