10 Victory on Dewey Monument at Union Square in San Francisco, California

In 1898, Admiral George Dewy decisively won the Manila Bay battle during the Spanish-American War. In tribute to the Naval hero, a monument was erected in the center of Union Square in 1903. On top is “Victory,” a nine foot sculpture by Robert Aitken. The Goddess of Victory holds a trident in one hand, which is often associated with Poseidon and Neptune, and a wreath in the other.
