William Starke Rosecrans Memorial
The Ohio Historical Marker tells of General
Rosecrans on one side and the Glacial Erratics on the other side.
The marker is co-sponsored by the Big Walnut Area Historical
Society, Rosecrans Command Headquarters, Delaware County Foundation
and the Ohio Historical Society.
Conceived by the Rosecrans Command Headquarters to honor Kingston Township native, funds and in-kind donations were raised locally to commission Sculptor Alan Cottrill to make this equestrian Statue of the General and his horse Bony (after Boneparte) which was dedicated Saturday, September 28, 2013.

The statue is mounted on one of the five largest Glacial Erratics in Ohio which was moved to Sunbury Square in July 2012 for this purpose. It is fitting as the largest glacial erratic in Ohio is located just east of Sunbury off Hartford Road.
