Major A. M. Harper Post 181 Monument Organized by Monument Face

Veterans of the Civil War formed a number of "posts" in Allegheny County. These posts kept attendance and detailed records of their activities. Records preserved at the library of Soldier's and Sailor's Hall in the Oakland section of Pittsburgh show that the activities of the posts included caring for widows and orphans of veterans. The Major A. M. Harper Post 181 also erected a monument in Braddock Cemetery, on Locust St. See Grand Army of the Republic and Related Research Links for more information about the GAR posts.

Three roads fan out from the Braddock Cemetery gate. The right and middle roads outline diamond-shaped Section 1, and meet at the A. M. Harper Post Circle, containing a monument shaped like the Washington Monument. The monument stands on a square pedestal. The 66 names listed here are inscribed on the four faces of the pedestal.
