The town in Germany where I live has what is actually a rarity among German war memorials. It has a memorial to the dead of the Franco-Prussian War. Of course, they have the obligatory WWI and II memorial like every self respecting German town that calls itself a town. Most do not have Franco-Prussian War memorials though, in all my travels throughout Germany over 12+years I have only seen a few memorials to the Franco Prussian War. The one where I live is actually pretty nice and obviously well thought out. The memorial is in the form of an obelisk supported by three cannonballs and the three different faces have different texts. Pictures and translations of some the texts are below.
