Memorial Day

For Memorial Day, two drawings of the Civil War Monument in Brooklyn's Greenwood Cemetery.

These statues symbolize Infantry, Artillery, and Cavalry. On the opposite side is one representing the Engineers.

And here is an older drawing of the Prison Ship Martyrs' Monument in Fort Greene Park. It's a memorial to an estimated 11,500 troops who died on British prison ships in New York Harbor during the Revolutionary War. Some of their remains are in a crypt beneath the monument.
