The Providence Soldiers and Sailors Monument is an integral part of Rhode Island’s history and landscape. The effort to restore and preserve this iconic structure and piece of essential cultural memory is a cause for all Rhode Islanders to unite behind.
Learn more about this historic monument, and its significance to our capital city in this stirring video, Public Memory/Public Spaces, a production by local film maker, Jamie McGuire of (3P) Ponderosa Penguin Productions. In this film, we are introduced to descendants of soldiers whose names are on this monument, as well as thoughts on the monument’s importance to our community from Senator Jack Reed and Mayor Jorge Elorza.
Help us restore this monument by making a tax-deductible contribution today.
All donors will be thanked on our website and invited to the dedication ceremony. You can learn more details about the project here, and if you think you may have an ancestor on the monument, search our online database.
