"A Symbol of Sacrifice and Peace"

The 44 foot (13.4 meters) neoclassical sculpture on the United States Capitol ground honors the country's naval soldiers who laid down their lives during the American Civil War. The sculpture's creator Franklin Simmons built the Peace Monument out of white marble. At the peak of the monument stand two robed female figures- Grief and History. Another female figure below Grief and History is Victory. Below her are the infant Mars and Neptune, the gods of war and sea respectively. The statue is a part of the Civil War Monuments in Washington, DC., and is listed in the National Register of Historic Places.
