American Revolution Statuary

This collection of heroic outdoor statues commemorates figures of the American Revolutionary War.

The American Revolution Statuary, completely authorized and mostly paid for by Congress, includes both standing pedestrian and equestrian statues of figures from the Revolutionary War. Strategically placed in public parks, the statues are executed in the realistic style popular after the Civil war and mostly rendered in bronze with classical bases. The statues form part of DC's large collection of 19th and 20th century monuments by noted American and foreign sculptors, exemplifying the use of the nation's capital as a commemorative setting.
