Description
This monument, entitled the Bronze Soldier Civil War Monument, honors some 240 men from the townships of Greenburgh and Mt. Pleasant, New York. The names of soldiers killed in action are engraved into the monument’s base; those who served are listed on tablets mounted to the base. Created by Johnson Marchant Mundy, a sculptor and painter who worked in New York, the work is a bronze sculpture on a stone base. (The above title is cited in the Canning and Buxton book about the history of the Tarrytowns; see below. At the time, Sleepy Hollow, the town where the monument stands, was a part of Greenburgh township.) Sponsored by local government, the bronze and stone piece is situated within Sleepy Hollow Cemetery, on its Way Side Avenue, which runs parallel to the Albany Post Road, today’s U.S. 9. The work was made in the New York foundry of the Henry-Bonnard Bronze Company and dedicated on Memorial Day, May 30, 1890.
