1876 Heroes Grove, Marshall Hill
Eden Park, Cincinnati, Ohio

On one weekend in April 2000, a number of compatriots met to visit the Revolutionary War Monument in Heroes Grove on Marshall Hill in Eden Park. There were originally 36 oak trees planted here that were brought from Valley Forge, one for each Patriot listed on the monument. Several replacement trees were planted by the U.S. Marine Corps in 1976 to commemorate the Bicentennial. Heroes Grove is east of the water tower.

The inscription states:
Dedicated to the memory of the Heroes of 1776 and the Patriots who suffered with Washington at Valley Forge. Brought from that historic ground and planted by A.E. Jones April 27, 1876.
