"Civil War Hero"

This tiny square actually shaped like an obtuse triangle is named after Civil War Union General Philip Sheridan. Appointed by Ulysses S. Grant and known for his strategem in defeating the formidable Robert E. Lee at Appomattox, the city of New York declared this space in honor of him in 1896. In the 20th Century it was used for various purposes, most notably as a soapbox site for protests, especially during the Stonewall Riots in 1969. In 1982, the city converted the square into a public viewing garden and though the statue of General Sheridan sits in nearby Christopher Park, the 4,200-sq. ft. space still serves as a reminder of why this General was so beloved in the North.
