Greenfield Soldiers' Monument
Located in the town common, the Soldiers’ Monument honours the 50 Greenfield men who were killed in action during the Civil War. Artist James G. Batterson’s study of Egyptology is noticeable in the design of the granite column, which is topped by a bronze Eagle defending its nest against the serpents of secession and copperheads.
