The monument stands at the gates of the Burlington 37 Cemetery and was funded in part by individual donations and donated proceeds from a book called “The Promise Land” by Earl Pratt, an Ohio lawyer from Ironton. (The "Burlington 37" were the freed Virginia slaves who founded Burlington, Ohio in the mid-19th century.)
