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


The first piece of public sculpture to be erected in the city of Haverhill, this monument was dedicated in 1869 in honour of the 187 local men who lost their lives fighting the Civil War. Standing at 20 feet tall, both statue and base are crafted from marble, and were executed by Haverhill stone-carver Patrick McLaughlin. McLaughlin modelled the standing soldier on his son Frank, a veteran of the 17th and 50th Massachusetts Infantries.
