The Revolutionary War Monument in Middletown, Dauphin County

We enjoy taking road trips all around the United States. Every time we hit the road, we seek out the historic sites along the way. These sites can be historical markers, natural landmarks, historic places, monuments, memorials and sometimes things that we find off-the-beaten path.

While visiting another historical site in Middletown, Dauphin County, we stumbled upon the Revolutionary War Monument. It sits right on the property of the Sant Peter's Kierch Church at the corner of High Street and Union Street in Middletown, Pennsylvania.

The Inscription Reads as Follows:

Erected by Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and the Swatara-Pine Ford Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution. This tablet is in commemoration of the services of Revolutionary War soldiers buried at Middletown or immediate vicinity. This marker is dedicated in grateful recognition of their patriotism, valor and fidelity.

Below the main inscription you'll find a lot of our fallen heroes name's and military rank.

If you're documenting historical markers and National Historic Places you can check out the Sant Peter's Kierch historical marker which sits right beside the monument. The Sant Peter's Kierch Church is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and you'll find information about the church on the property too.

It's always nice to see small towns across America honoring their hometown war heroes by dedicating various monuments, memorials, banners, etc. to them. Matter of fact, as we drove through downtown Middletown they had hometown heroes banners hanging up on the majority of their street lampposts which was nice to see too!
