On November of 2008, after the initiative of Egils Helmanis, celebrating the 90th anniversary of Latvia's independence and honouring the Latvian Riflemen battles in Ogre territory during October of 1916, a memorial was unveiled, dedicated to the soldiers of the Second Latvian Riflemen brigade of Riga, who from Ogre across the river Daugava went directly into a battle against the German army. The memorial was designed by Eižens Laube.
