Soldier's & Sailor's memorial

The Soldiers' and Sailors' Memorial Monument commemorates Union Army soldiers and sailors who served in the American Civil War. It is located at 89th Street and Riverside Drive in Riverside Park on the Upper West Side of Manhattan. It was dedicated on Memorial Day, 1902.

The white marble monument was designed after a public competition by architects Charles and Arthur Stoughton. The ornamental features were carved by Paul E. Duboy (1857–1907) who also was the architect of The Ansonia, an apartment building also on the Upper West Side. The New York Landmark Commission designated the Soldiers' and Sailors' Monument a landmark in 2001.

Today New York, one of the nation's original 13 states celebrates it's war heros and veterans from the Revolutionary war to Iraq. Brave New Yorker's served our country in Revolutionary War, War of 1812, Civil War, Spanish-American War, World War I, World War II, Korean War, Viet Nam, Gulf War and Iraq.

We honor and remember them all and their families today.

Mitchell, what a great photo of a great monument.  Somehow we much all keep in mind that we must honor our Veterans not only at times like Veterans Day, but during the entire year.  They can be so easily forgotten and overlooked at other times.  Any time of the year... if you seen anyone you recognize as a Veteran... they should be thanked.

Thanks for shocasing this monument today. I'm sure you'd like a little sun too. :)

Mitchell,

Thanks so much for sharing the Soldiers and Sailors Monument with us.

Looks like you might have had a little rain on your parade but hopefully not enough to stop it!
