Kneeling Soldier Monument
 September 2004

Kneeling Soldier Civil War Monument

The Society worked with a committed comprised of Civil War historians and the pastor of the Wesley United Methodist Church to install a monument to Dorchester?s military volunteers for the Union effort in the War Between the States. Incorporating the newly-designed image of a kneeling soldier, this monument took its place on the church grounds in September, 2004, along with a nineteenth-century stone monument listing the names of the members of the Church who served in that conflict. The stone had originally been housed in the old church building and was recently found in a salvage yard on Cape Cod and returned to the Church.
