"The Torch of Liberty"
This shaft was donated by the Ohio War Savings Committee to the County of Morrow as an award to her citizens who, in aid of the government, purchased more War Savings Stamps per capita than any other county in the state.
Dedicated in honor of all Morrow County men and women who wore the uniform of their country and served under the colors during the World War of 1917-1918 and to the memory of those who relinquished all that liberty might not perish.
"Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends"
