Lincoln Nebraska- Building A Stadium....
In the fall of 1922, a drive for $430,000 in stadium construction funds was undertaken by faculty, students, alumni and friends of the University of Nebraska.The quota was over subscribed. The Stadium was named Memorial Stadium to honor all Nebraskans who served in the Civil and Spanish American Wars; the 751 Nebraskans who died in World War I, the 3,839 in World War II, the 225 in Korea and the 422 in Vietnam. Construction was completed in a few more than 90 working days and Memorial Stadium was dedicated on Oct. 20,1923 at a Homecoming game in which Nebraska was held to a scoreless tie by Kansas. A salute to those who lost their lives in the line of duty and for whom Memorial Stadium was built to honor.
