Soldiers' & Sailors' Monument
Welcome to Cuyahoga County's Civil War Monument
This holiday season the Cuyahoga County Soldiers' and Sailors' Monument is presenting "Patriotic Santa" as a free public event. Join this historically accurate Civil War Santa pulled from the pages of Harper's Weekly.

In 1862 and 63 Thomas Nast, an illustrator for Harper's Weekly merged the elfin imagery from his native Germany and the European mythology of Santa Clause to create what we know of today as the American version of Santa.
