A monument that was set in East Hill Cemetery in 1896 and removed about 1925 has been returned after an absence of about 87 years. This time, it does not mark a gravesite but was reset as a memorial to a very prominent and long time resident of Bristol. Actually, I think it is only a part of the original monument, but the vital part in that it has the inscription.

It was erected in 1896 for the Rev. George Caldwell, a Confederate veteran, and was donated by the First Presbyterian Church that set up a subscription fund for that purpose since he had pastored that church for 27 years.
