This bronze mortar, one of four captured guns given to the State of Michigan, was obtained by the Class of 1899 as a gift to the university to serve as a memorial to U-M men who fought in the Spanish-American War. It sits on the west side of Hatcher Library South. The Record periodically highlights pieces of public art at U-M. Learn more about this piece, or browse an online collection of public artworks.
