William Eustis, Governor of Massachusetts
This obelisk rises above the grave of William Eustis, Governor of Massachusetts from 1823-1825.
Eustis studied medicine under Patriot leader Dr. Joseph Warren. While briefly serving in the Lexington Militia, he tended the wounded at the Battle of Bunker Hill, and served as a surgeon throughout the War. He also served in Congress and was Secretary of War in the James Madison administration.
Next, look for the lone gravestone flanked by British flags near the woods.
