Essex Soldiers' and Sailors' Monument (Essex, Massachusetts)


Dedicated on 30 May 1905, this monument depicts a soldier at parade rest. After repeated calls for a monument to Essex's Union troops, the O.H.P. Sargent Post of the Women's Relief Corps conducted a successful campaign to fund its creation and erection. While the statue's plinth was designed by Ames & Snow of Lynn, the sculpture was likely provided by the Smith Granite Company, of Westerly, Rhode Island, a company who specialized in mass-producing infantrymen statues of this type.
