Washington Monument, (Capitol Square), Richmond, Va.
This imposing work of art by Thomas Crawford (father of F. Marion Crawford, the novelist) has been declared by competent critics to be the finest equestrian statue in the world. It was unveiled Feb. 22, 1838; it is said that 'when the wall was withdrawn a sunbeam fell on the horse and rider, through the falling snow, making a most striking scene.' The design of the base is a six-ray star, the statue of an eminent Virginian resting upon each ray, as follows: Patrick Henry, Geo. Mason, Thos. Jefferson, John Marshall, Thos. Nelson, Jr., and Andrew Lewis.
