S. H. Harden of Newaygo

Even though Harden was a member of an Ohio company of sharpshooters and not the 3rd Michigan I'm including him since his monument in Newaygo City Cemetery (Michigan) is truly unique.

While it is not uncommon to see a life-size statue of a Union soldier at a Grand Army of the Republic Monument, it's rare to see one at the grave of a single soldier.
