First Massachusetts Cavalry Monument

A visitor to my Civil War page on Jeb Stuart's screening actions on the route to Gettysburg wrote asking where the 1st Massachusetts Cavalry Monument is located. It's on Snickersville Turnpike near Aldie, Virginia. A map can be seen at which has an interesting Civil War page under the History link.
