The Monument

Standing in the Boston (MA) neighborhood of Jamaica Plain is the "Soldier's Monument", the large white structure honoring the local citizens who died in the Civil War. The three step base is constructed of Quincy (MA) granite; the main part of the structure constructed of Clark's Island granite. In the foreground is a commemoration for those who served in the 'War of the Revolution'.
