The monument in the photo above is topped by a statue of Minerva,"the Roman goddess of battle and protector of civilization." She faces toward, and waves to, the Statue of Liberty, which can be seen from Battle Hill. On the face of the base below the statue are the words, "Altar to Liberty." The mausoleum behind belongs to the family of Charles Higgins, the ink manufacturer who funded the monument.
There is also a Civil War monument (photo above) on Battle Hill.
Ever remember how much of National Prosperity is due to the brave exertions of the Soldiers who died in the service of their Country.
