Bataan War Memorial
Sixty-six men from Mercer County left San Francisco on October 27, 1941 under sealed orders with the 192nd GHQ Tank Battalion. They arrived in Manila, Philippine Islands on November 20, 1941.
They fought to defend Bataan and Corregidor during a critical battle of World War II.
These brave men endured the battle, the "Bataan Death March," and more than three years as prisoners of war before returning to Kentucky. Twenty-nine lost their lives. This memorial is a WWII M-4 Tank.
