Soldiers Monument at Sleepy Hollow Cemetery

From the facebook page of Sleepy Hollow Cemetery:

"Today marks the 113th anniversary of the passing of Johnson Marchant Mundy (May 31, 1829–August 16, 1897). A painter and sculptor, Mundy suffered poor eyesight most of his life. He lived the last 14 years of his life in Tarrytown, NY in the care of his sister. Although by then legally blind, he would create the bronze sculpture of a Union soldier that stands atop Sleepy Hollow Cemetery's Civil War monument. Mundy himself is buried at the south end of the cemetery a few steps from author Washington Irving."
Here are the photos I took of the monument
