Who is the man on a horse in front of washington capital building?


Best Answer...

Answer:

The Ulysses S. Grant Memorial is a United States Presidential Memorial in Washington, D.C., honoring American Civil War General and President of the United States Ulysses S. Grant. It is located at the base of Capitol Hill (Union Square, the Mall, 1st Street, between Pennsylvania Avenue and Maryland Avenue), and like the United States Capitol at the top of the hill to the east, the monument's statue faces west toward the Lincoln Memorial honoring Grant's wartime president, Abraham Lincoln. Equistant between the Grant and Lincoln memorials, which define the east and west boundaries of the National Mall, is the Washington Monument. The Grant Memorial includes the largest equestrian statue in the United States and the second largest in the world, after the monument to Italy's King Victor Emanuel in Rome. James M. Goode in his authoritative The Grant Memorial in Washington D.C. says it "...constitutes one of the most important sculptures in Washington.". The Society of the Army of the Tennessee began the effort in the 1890's which culminated in the memorial's dedication decades later.

A striking feature of the central statue is Grant's calm (almost disaffected) attitude amidst the raging fighting going on around him. This is not surprising because Grant was known for his calmness and coolheadedness during battle. In sharp contrast to Grant are the sculpture groups on either side "...possess[ing] more dramatic interest and suspense than any sculpture in the city and, indeed, in the Nation". The Artillery Group to the south shows a caisson carrying three artillerymen and pulled by three horses. Astride the horse on the left is the guidon (flag) carrier who is signaling a sharp right wheel. Despite the impending course change the horse on the right is able to continue lunging forward due to a broken strap on the right bridle bit. To the north the Cavalry Group depicts a color squad consisting of seven cavalrymen charging into battle. The horse on the right has fallen and the rider, modeled after Shrady himself, is moments from being trampled by the onrushing horses.
