The total cost of this project is estimated at $37,615, with the Virginia SAR Knight-Patty Fund providing $16,115. This approval came after over a year of work and planning by the City and the CMM Revolutionary War Walk Committee which Lon Lacey chairs. This memorial will be the centerpiece of the Revolutionary War Walk in Yowell Meadow Park. The first monument in this project, a memorial to Major Gabriel Long, was dedicated in 2015 (link to the report on that dedication here). Other monuments are planned at 2-3 year intervals.
