Melvin Memorial, Sleepy Hollow
Three brothers from the Melvin family of Concord MA went off to fight in the Civil War. Only one returned alive.

 

Melvin Memorial, Concord MA

All three rest here at this shady spot in Sleepy Hollow Cemetery, remembered by a beautiful, touching memorial created by renowned sculptor Daniel Chester French, who also made The Minuteman at Concord's North Bridge, and the Seated Lincoln in the Lincoln Memorial in Washington DC.

Daniel Chester French is buried just over the hill behind the Melvin Memorial.
