Middleborough Veterans Memorial Park

The Middleborough Veterans Memorial Park offers a unique collection of remembrances and dedications to those who served.

The flag is supported by bricks, engraved with the names of both veterans and non-veterans. The physical support that these name-engraved bricks give the flag symbolizes of the support that each person gave either to their country or to an individual's life.

Four young men, African-Americans from Plymouth, served in the American Revolution. Cato Howe was a freeman who had probably never been enslaved. Plato Turner and Prince Goodwin were former slaves. Quamany Quash, who fought for liberty for his country, was himself enslaved and not emancipated until after his military service.Following the war, the Town of Plymouth granted these men acreage near the Kingston border, in an area known as Parting Ways. Howe, Turner, Goodwin and Quash - with their families - established a settlement there known as the New Guinea Settlement. These four American Patriots are buried at Parting Ways and their gravesites marked with American flags. Read more about Parting Ways Cemetery
