This is a nice tribute to the area's history. The view from the monument is beautiful, overlooking the tristate area and rivers. It's a short drive from West 4th St.
My trip happened in 1932 when our family drove from California to visit War Eagle's grave. He was my Great, Great, Great, Great Grandfather. The site on the bluff was open and covered with grass. There was a simple white grave stone with a rendition of the Peace and Freedom Medal given to him by President Van Buren when he... More
This is a monument to a Yankton Chief. The Yanktons were of the Sioux nation but were not warlike. War Eagle, even tough his name indicates otherwise, was a peace maker and a big help to the white man. If you are a history buff, don't pass this one up. Geographically, it is very interesting to see The Big Sioux... More
What a view! Was on top when a storm rolled in from the distance in Nebraska and it was pretty cool to see it develop. You can see Nebraska, South Dakota and of course Iowa from the point. The statue is a nice monument to a Chief. Nice attraction.
You can see three states from here. The view is great. The history surrounding War Eagle is a very important part of the area. The road leading to the monument is not the best and not well marked. Neither is the parking. If this was improved I would have rated it a 5.
This is a good stop high above the bluffs for a good view of the Tri-state region and the river. There is not much to see other than the large statue commemorating the chief.
The road to this monument isn't the best and there is a walk up to the monument but when you get there, the view is worth it. Apparently, we were the day after a teenage party as there was a lot of trash around. Workers were there to clean it up. I agree with another viewer that some additional work... More
The monument itself is nice, but there could be more history given on Chief War Eagle himself. The view of the Missouri river would be gorgeous except for the high black metal fence that you have to look through to see the river. It also could be set up better for people to actually sit and stay a few minutes.
The monument is on a gravel road, and not well marked, but when you find it, there is a short steep walk to the monument. It was well worth the effort. The monument is lovely, but when you turn around, the valley view is spectacular. There is a second monument to view on the way to War Eagle.
