Soldiers and Sailors (Portsmouth, New Hampshire)


The Soldiers and Sailors Monument was dedicated in 1889, having been built by T. M. Perry. The monument is located in a triangle formed by Concord, Amherst, and Nashville streets and commemorates the soldiers in New Hampshire that fought in the war. On the top of the monument is a figure of victory dressed in a classical Roman robe, who also holds an American shield and a laurel wreath. On the monument's base are bronze statues of a sailor and a soldier, a statue of liberty watching the reconciliation of the North and South, and another statue of an emancipation scene with a Union soldier extending a scroll alone with Kearsarge sinking Alabama.
