The Sphinx of Boston - Mt. Auburn

Sculpted by Martin Milmore of Boston in 1872, the Mt. Auburn "Sphinx" is a striking memorial to the soldiers who died during the American Civil War -- but when you stroll through Mt. Auburn you come to expect monuments out of the ordinary.

"American union preserved
African slavery destroyed
by the uprising of a great people
by the blood of fallen heroes"
