What Is a Votive Stone?

The votive stone refers to the monument that was given to the minutemen who fought the British at Concord in 1775 to commemorate their bravery. It also means something that is given or dedicated to fulfill a vow or pledge. It is also used to express or symbolize a wish, desire, or vow.

‘We set today a votive stone…’

A Concord Hymn

By the rude bridge that arched the flood,
Their flag to April’s breeze unfurled;
Here once the embattled farmers stood;
And fired the shot heard round the world.

The foe long since in silence slept;
Alike the conqueror silent sleeps,
And Time the ruined bridge has swept
Down the dark stream that seaward creeps.

On this green bank, by this soft stream,
We set to-day a votive stone,
That memory may their deeds redeem,
When, like our sires, our sons are gone.

O Thou who made those heroes dare
To die, and leave their children free, —
Bid Time and Nature gently spare
The shaft we raised to them and Thee.
– Ralph Waldo Emerson
