Among the most elegant boulevards in Washington,DC is Massachusetts Ave. (nicknamed Embassy Row) and one of the most elegant sections of that Avenue is Sheridan Circle.

Exif_JPEG_PICTUREIn the middle of the Circle is  General Philip Sheridan by Gutzon Bornlum (of Mt. Rushmore fame). This statue has a rawness and power neither present nor perhaps desired in many of the city’s other monuments to Civil War, War of 1812, and Revolutionary War generals.Imagefile://localhost/Users/williamlebovich/Pictures/Aperture%20Library.aplibrary/Previews/2013/05/06/20130506-050902/TPM86d2jTg6D+Z+Eqkay5g/General%20Sheridan%20Sculpture%206.jpgImageImage
