Alexander Scammell Memorial

Located in the Burial Hill Cemetery in Plymouth, Massachusetts, this small memorial, made of a bronze plaque mounted on a granite stone, marks the site of the once influential school where Alexander Scammell taught before the US Revolutionary War. Scammell was Colonel and Adjutant General when he was killed near Yorktown in 1781.

The stone memorial is engraved with the commemoration of the site and serves as a reminder of both Colonel and General Scammell's work as a school teacher and of the great sacrifice he made when he died.
