About the Object

Leonard Wells Volk made this statuette as a model for the over-nine-foot sculpture in his Rochester Soldiers’ and Sailors’ Monument in Washington Square Park.  The artist described the sculpture as “heroic in size, some would say colossal.”  

Over 100,000 visitors attended the statue’s unveiling on Memorial Day, 1892, including luminaries Frederick Douglass and President Benjamin Harrison.
