Anniversary of the Death of Civil War General James B. McPherson
The veterans unveiled the monument on October 18, 1876, the date of the society's 11th reunion. The sculpture features McPherson on horseback, surveying a battlefield with field glasses in his right hand. In the casting of the statue, created Louis Rebisso, Confederate cannon captured at the Battle of Atlanta were used.
