MacNeil’s “Soldiers and Sailors Monument” ~ Philadelphia ~~ The Early Days ~ PostcardsBy
WE ASSURE FREEDOM TO THE FREE”. Abraham Lincoln
The Soldiers and Sailors Monument in Philadelphia By Hermon A. MacNeil was dedicated in 1927. Two 60 foot granite pylons mark the entrance to the Benjamin Franklin Parkway. The period automobiles and newly planted trees line the Parkway. This beautiful boulevard leads from Logan Circle through the rolling Parkway Gardens on up the hill to the Philadelphia Art Museums.
