"The Mexican War Monument is a marble obelisk that was erected by the Scott Legion in honor of 38 men who served and died in that conflict. The men were originally buried at Glenwood Cemetery and were re-interred at Philadelphia National Cemetery in 1927. The date of dedication is unknown."

See: http://www.cem.va.gov/cems/nchp/philadelphia.asp

While the VA website indicates that the monument was erected to honor 38 men, many more names than that are inscribed onto the monument. The monument has three faces, and at least 38 names are inscribed on each face.

For other views of the monument, see Pvt. Thomas G. Funston, memorial #54001310, and George W. Nightlinger, memorial #48832568.
