Excerpt from Proceedings at the Dedication of the Soldiers and Sailors Monument: In Providence, to Which Is Appended a List of the Deceased Soldiers and Sailors Whose Names Are Sculptured Upon the Monument The General Assembly having appointed Saturday, the 16th of September, 1871, as the day on which the Dedication of the Soldiers' and Sailors' Monument should take place, the State Committee took every means in their power to provide for the accommodation of the families and relatives of the deceased soldiers and sailors to whose memory the Monument had been erected. A platform was raised on three sides of the Monument with seats sufficient to accommodate about twenty-three hundred persons, including the invited guests. Great pains were taken to furnish tickets through agents appointed for the purpose, to families of deceased soldiers and sailors in all parts of the State, and all who applied received them. The annual muster of the Militia was suspended by order of the Goverr, and all the uniformed companies in the State were required to appear in Providence on the 16th of September, to take part in the proceedings attending the Dedication. To provide for the Veterans who had served in the War and the uniformed Militia of the State, the whole of the large square kwn as Exchange Place, was enclosed and guarded by a large body of policemen.
