The fourth of six monuments erected in Gloucester in honour of those who fought in the Civil War, the Riverdale Martyrs Monument was dedicated in June 1886. A granite obelisk, this monument records the names of 15 Massachusetts men who gave their lives for the Union, and on its tablet are represented the badges of the corps with which they fought.
