From a Boston Cemetery

I can't tell you which cemetery in Boston these two monuments were found but a friend sent these to me and I thought they were worthy enough to pass along to you.

S. H. Harden in Newaygo Cemetery

This monument is certainly unique among civil war veteran gravesites.

While it is not uncommon to see a life-size statue of a Union soldier at a Grand Army of the Republic Monument, it's rare to see one at the grave of a single soldier.
S. H. Harden, 6th Independent Co. Ohio Sharpshooters
