This monument is dedicated to the memory of those American fighting men who lost their lives in the War of 1812 on this northern frontier.

These grounds were made hallowed when the remains of more than 200 soldiers, unknown but for their deeds, were buried here between 1812 and 1815.

Their earthly remains lay long forgotten until rediscovered at this site in 1988, once headquarters of the Army of the Northern Frontier, located at Fort Pike, and later renamed Madison Barracks.
