This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Martin Millmore, a sculptor, was born in Sligo, Ireland in 1844 and brought to Boston, Massachusetts in 1851.

Training began with his brother, Joseph, a stonecutter, who later became his assistant. Millmore was apprenticed to Thomas Ball from 1858 to 1862 working mainly on his equestrian "George Washington" (1858-61, Boston Public Gardens). After Ball departed for Italy, Millmore became Boston's leading sculptor.

Realistic in style and aiming to be ideal, his work included busts of leading Bostonians, including Wendell Phillips (circa 1870, Old State House), in a straightforward manner. Best known for his Civil War monuments, Millmore contributed to the development of new and later often imitated memorials that featured, in the smaller examples, the common soldier rather than officers and, in the more complex ones, a shaft surrounded by plaques and sculptural figures. A monument in Claremont, New Hampshire (1869) represents the former type, a large one on the Boston Common (1874), the latter. He completed the Boston piece while in Rome in the early 1870s.

Martin Millmore died in 1883.
