Obelisk in Duved dedicated to the memory of war disaster in 1718.

The monument is an obelisk, 10 feet high, in Stockholm granite with three lines of text in a North Star, "1719, year, Carolinians."

The obelisk was carved in Stockholm after Major Gustaf Björlins drawings. The monument was inaugurated in 1892 in memory of war disaster when Karl XII's invasion forces in Trøndelag in 1718 retreated during severe winter weather over the border mountains at New Year. Approximately 3000 men were killed, many in the mountains, but hundreds also afterwards due to frostbite.

Find us: Road E14 past Duved or Karolinervägen near Duveds center, about 2 km west. Duved monument stands prominently on a hill next to Millestgården, on the site of Duveds sconce, a defense plant by year 1658. It is a well-chosen location with magnificent views!
