45 General Sherman Statue in Central Park in New York City, New York

General William Sherman was a legendry leader in the Union Army during the Civil War. He is quoted as saying, “War is hell.” Shortly after his death in 1891, sculptor Augustus Saint-Gaudens was commissioned to create this equestrian bronze tribute with the Genius of Victory figure leading the way. The ensemble was installed in Central Park in 1903. This photo was taken shortly before the statue was regilded in 2014.
