War Mother Memorialsloupe
July 3, 1924

The original Liberty Memorial Bridge that carried the Memorial Highway over the Missouri River was demolished in 2009. The new bridge was also named a memorial bridge and part of its construction included building monuments at each end surrounding the War Mother Memorial granite boulder markers that were originally dedicated July 3, 1924. Granite was chosen because the boulders had "withstood the storms and stress of the ages as best typifying mother love."
