Cemetery notes and/or description:
The monument reads:
"The Commonwealth of Massachusetts & the Town of Acton, cooperating to perpetuate the fame of glorious deeds of patriotism, have erected this monument in honor of Capt. Isaac Davis, & privates Abner Hosmer & James Hayward, citizen-soldiers of Acton & Provincial MinuteMen, who fell in Concord-Fight the 19th of April A.D. 1775.

On the morning of that eventful day the Provincial officers held a council of war near the old North Bridge in Concord & as they separated Davis exclaimed, "I hav'nt a man that is afraid to go" & immediately marched his company from the left to the right of the line, & led in this first organized attack upon the troops of George III in that memorable war, which, by the help of God, made the thirteen colonies independent of Great Britain, & gave political being to the
United States of America. Acton April 19th, 1851."
