Artist's Description

General Philip Sheridan was a Union general in the Civil War, and was immortalized on horseback by renowned American sculptor Gutzon Borglum, whose most famous work is Mount Rushmore. In 1908, before he was established as a “first rate” sculptor, Borglum won a competition to create a statue of Sheridan in Washington, D.C. President Theodore Roosevelt was present at the unveiling of the statue, and publicly declared that it was “first rate”, an accolade that helped boost Borglum’s career, which culminated with his masterpiece on Mount Rushmore (interestingly, Theodore Roosevelt is one of the four Presidents on the South Dakota mountainside). The famous statue of General Sheridan, with hat in hand, is at Sheridan Circle in Washington, D.C.

This is an “as is” photograph, there was no post processing.
