The unveiling of the Welsford-Parker Monument took place in St. Paul’s Cemetery in Halifax. The monument was shaped in the form of a triumphal arch and surmounted by the British lion. It was built in memory of Major Augustus Frederick Welsford (1811–1855) and fellow soldier William Buck Carthew Augustus Parker (1823–1855) — commemorated as imperial heroes at the Battle of the Great Redan during the Siege of Sevastopol in Crimea. This monument became the fourth-oldest in Canada, and the only monument to the Crimean War (1853–February 1856) in North America.
