Here are 15 photos of the Soldiers' & Sailors' Monument at the summit of East Rock Park in New Haven, Connecticut.

 

The monument, completed in 1887, is 112 feet (34 meters) tall and includes five bronze statues of female figures, the Angel of Peace at the top plus four nearer the base representing the virtues of history, patriotism, victory, and prosperity.
