Other nearby markers. At least 8 other markers are within 2 miles of this marker, measured as the crow flies. Soldiers of the American Revolution (approx. 0.6 miles away); a different marker also named Soldiers of the American Revolution
The marker states it was erected in 1929, but it appeared that the marker was only placed here recently and the plaques were polished. I am guessing the marker was moved to this location due to the recent construction of Interstate 86 and realignment of the local roads.
