Check-in Icon



The Civil War Memorial is located in Kingston, MA, and commemorates the Civil War Heritage and Kingston Irish-born men and women who fought for the Union in the Civil War. Some of Kingston’s Irish-born men fought in the war. This Civil War Memorial stands at around 16ft high and includes a granite pedestal and a six-foot bronze statue of an infantryman. The monument also features a plaque honoring the 16 men and one woman who sacrificed their lives for the war. 


Mrs. Abigail Adams, widow of Samuel Adams, commissioned the monument on the town Green to honor those brave individuals who fought for national unity. Some Irish-born men who fought in the Civil War include Bartholomew O’Brien and his four sons. Two of the O’Brien sons died in the conflict, a third was wounded and is buried in St. Joseph’s cemetery. This monument is the only one in the South Shore to list a woman, army nurse Martha Sever, who lost her life in the war.
