St. Paul, MN (NNCNOW.com) - A miniature version of an Iron Range Veterans Memorial in Virginia was dedicated at the State Capitol Thursday.

The 175-pound miniature model of "Shoulder to Shoulder, Even the Fallen Stand Tall" will be displayed in the Governor's reception area

The maquette was the model used to create the full size, 27-foot long sculpture that now stands in Virginia's Veterans Memorial Park.

A $50,000 donation from the Iron Mining Association last month to the Iron Range Veterans Memorial Committee helped pay off the final costs for the full scale model.
