Finally! A monument for Susie King Taylor at her Boston burial site. 

Susie King Taylor Women's Institute and Ecology Center's executive director Hermina Glass-Hill represented Susie King Taylor's home state of Georgia and hometowns of Midway and Savannah in Boston in October 2021 at the dedication of a monument to honor the Geechee Heroine of Freedom. After 109 years without a marker at her burial site in Boston, the Sons of Union Veterans of the Civil War honored her service with a ceremony attended by Boston's Mayor Kin Janey.
