Wikipedia Description: George Gordon Meade Memorial
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Meade Memorial, is a public artwork by American artist Charles Grafly, located at 3rd & Pennsylvania Avenue N.W. in Washington, D.C., United States. Meade Memorial was originally surveyed as part of the Smithsonian's Save Outdoor Sculpture! survey in 1993. The monument is a tribute to United States Army officer George Meade.
The statue is a contributing monument to the Civil War Monuments in Washington, DC, of the National Register of Historic Places.
This cylinder shaped statue features a figure of General George Meade on the proper front and a figure of War on the proper back, surrounded by six figures standing side by side. The six figures, all allegorical representations of Loyalty, Chivalry, Fame, Progress, Military Courage and Energy, were used by Grafly to show what he believed are traits needed to make a "great general.
To Meade's proper right is a male figure of Loyalty, and to his proper left is a female figure of Chivalry, who are shown removing Meade's cloak, which symbolizes the "cloak of battle." Above Meade's head Loyalty holds a wreath and garlands representing the generals deeds. Behind Loyalty stands a female figure of Fame who is supported by a male figure of Energy. Behind the figure of Chivalry is a male figure of Progress and behind him a male figure of Military Courage, who locks arms with War. Winged War is flanked by two memorial tablets. At the top of the monument is a gold finial with the state seal of Pennsylvania.
SOS! describes the statue as showing Meade "represented as the embodiment of all six allegorical qualities as he emerges from his cloak of battle and progresses into his future."
The sculpture is signed:

2012 photos: Equipment this year: My mainstays were the Fuji S100fs, Nikon D7000, and the new Fuji X-S1. I also used an underwater Fuji XP50 and a Nikon D600. The first three cameras all broke this year and had to be repaired.
Trips this year:
three Civil War Trust conferences (Shepherdstown, WV, Richmond, VA, and Williamsburg, VA),
a week-long family reunion cruise of the Caribbean,
another week-long family reunion in the Wisconsin Dells (with lots of in-transit time in Ohio and Indiana), and
my 7th consecutive San Diego Comic-Con trip (including side trips to Zion, Bryce, the Grand Canyon, etc).
Ego strokes: I had a picture of Miss DC, Ashley Boalch, published in the Washington Post. I had a photograph of the George Segal San Francisco Holocaust memorial used as the cover of Quebec Francais (issue 165). Not being able to read French, I'm not entirely sure what the article is about but, hey! And I guess what could be considered to be a positive thing, my site is now established enough that spammers have noticed it and I had to block 17,000 file description postings for Viagra and whatever else..
Number of photos taken this year: just below 410,000.
