Sheridan Neighborhood Organization wished to include a memorial in a park being planned along the Mississippi River that would serve as a tribute to Minnesotans who served their country in war as well as include a component that sought to put the concept of peace into a concrete, tangible form. The writing of the veterans memorial component of the project was straightforward, consisting of the dates of the conflict, the number perished, a brief description of the conflict, and a quote of someone involved in it. The peace marker component of the project was more difficult, specifically because it was unclear as to how this topic should be addressed.
Conducted on behalf of the Sheridan Neighborhood Association. Supported by Neighborhood Planning for Community Revitalization (NPCR), a program of the Center for Urban and Regional Affairs (CURA), University of Minnesota.
