Massachusetts Civil War Monument

The Massachusetts Monument was erected in 1908 by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts in memory of her Soldiers and Sailors who died in North Carolina during the Civil War. The sculpture was completed in 1908 by Melzar Hunt Mossman of Chicopee, Massachusetts. The monument is a bronze female figure holding a pen in her right hand and shield with her left. She has written on the face of the shield,"AFTER LOYAL SERVICE, UNION AND PEACE". The bronze stands on a granite base with three bronze plaques.
