"In the Asylum Hill Congregational Church in Hartford, Connecticut, is a memorial tablet in honor of the noble woman who in 1855 became General Hawley's wife, Harriet Foote Hawley, and who died in 1886. The veterans of the Seventh Connecticut Regiment placed it there in grateful remembrance of her ministrations and benefactions to the soldiers of that regiment during the Civil War. Its inscription reads, 'By the grace of God Harriet Foote Hawley lived a helpful life, brave, tender and true, a soldier and servant of Jesus Christ.' "
