Tomb of the Unknown Soldier
The only monument dedicated to honor the memories of unknown Revolutionary War soldiers was originally used as a Potter's Field, where the poor and indigent were buried. Although Philadelphia is not known as a battleground, this section of Washington Square became the final resting place of thousands of soldiers as the barracks near the Square received the sick, wounded and dying of the war. By 1825 the site was no longer used as a cemetery and in 1954 a memorial honoring George Washington and an Unknown Soldier was erected.
Very well done memorial to the unknown soldier of the Revolution. The top of the tomb is inscribed with a wonderful quote that should leave every visitor thinking and thankful for those unknown soldiers.
