This is a Revolutionary War Soldiers' Memorial near the foot of the mound. The soldiers are noted with Memorial Metal Stars. There are more than 25 Revolutionary War Soldiers buried in Mound Cemetery which is reportedly home to the largest number of American Revolutionary War officers buried in one location. The earliest of these soldiers was buried in 1739.
One soldier buried was Commodore Abraham Whipple - an American revolutionary naval commander. He sunk the first British ship of the American Revolution, the British schooner HMS Gaspee. After the war, it was Whipple who, as a merchant marine commander, first unfurled our American flag in London.
There is also a monument erected by the Daughters of the American Revolution in honor of those unknown soldiers buried in the cemetery.
Ancient Indians, pioneers, and modern Americans rest peacefully side-by-side.
