Soldiers and Sailors Monument is near Congress Dental Group in Boston MA. The Soldiers’ and Sailors’ Monument is so much more than just an old fixture on Public Square. High atop the monument’s column sits a statue of the Goddess of Freedom, defended by the Shield of Liberty. At the base of the memorial, four bronze battle scenes unfold on the esplanade depicting the Navy, Artillery, Infantry and Cavalry.
Many people who gaze up at the 125-foot-high spire don’t realize that beneath it is a free museum that commemorates the 9,000 Civil War veterans that served with Cuyahoga County regiments or lived in Cuyahoga County. You can walk right in — free of charge — to escape the hustle and bustle of Downtown for a moment, and reflect on some serious history.
