3. New Hampshire Sharpshooters Monument
Marker stones for the companies stand along Hancock Avenue. One of which is in the foreground here, with the simple inscription "N.H.S.S." The monument stands just to the right of the "do not enter" sign. The marker stones do not match to any fixed line held by the sharpshooters, and may simply indicate a base line used by one of the companies while detailed on skirmish duties.
