Irish Brigade Monument
Birth: unknown
Death: unknown

Dedicated July 2, 1888. Members of the 63rd, 69th and 88th New York Infantry Regiments are honored by this Monument. They were migrates from Ireland who came to US, to escape political repression and the potato famine. A life-size Irish wolfhound at the base, represents faith and devotion. Above is a Celtic cross, a traditional Irish symbol and the the trefoil symbol of the 2nd Army Corps. Beneath is the numeric designations of the regiments, the state seal of NY, and the seal of Ireland. A bronze plaque on the right side of the base honors the 14th NY Independent Battery. (bio by: Helen L. Smith Hoke)
