Trinity Church Cemetery

Sacred the memory of
those brave and good Men who died
whilst imprisoned in this City, for their devotion to the
cause of American Independence.

At a meeting of Citizens held in the City Hall of the City of New York June 8, 1852, It was resolved that the erection of a becoming Monument with appropriate inscriptions by Trinity Church to the memory of the great and good men who died whilst in captivity in the old Sugar House and were interred in Trinity Church Yard in the City will be an act gratifying not only to the attendants of this meeting, but to every American Citizen.
