Robert Gould Shaw & The Massachusetts 54th Regiment Memorial

From the National Parks Service website (http://www.nps.gov/resources/story.htm?id=202)

The Robert Gould Shaw Memorial remains one of sculptor Augustus Saint-Gaudens' most stirring and celebrated masterpieces and is considered by some to be America's greatest public monument. Saint-Gaudens expended 14 years of his life developing the work, longer than any other of his career. The original was completed in 1897 and was installed where it remains today, at Beacon and Park Streets in Boston, Massachusetts.
