Description 

The design of this monument is a Grecian "Goddess of Liberty," figure and dress. She stands in a contemplative mood, subdued and sad, but at the same time one of exultation over the great results of the sacrifice for liberty. The base is a large block of marble from the quarries of Fisk and Barney, of the Isle La Motte. The memorial was erected in the fall of 1868. It is inscribed, "Erected By The Town Of Swanton, In Memory Of Her Patriot Soldiers, Who Fell In The War Of The Rebellion."
