Scupture is The George Washington-Robert Morris-Hyam Salomon Memorial

Designed by Lorado Taft, whose ancestors fought in the Revolutionary War, this memorial honors three men who played huge roles in the American Revolution: George Washington, commander of the Continental forces and first President of the United States; and two financiers of the war, the English-born Robert Morse and Polish-Jewish emigre, Hyam Salomon. Situated prominently along the Chicago Riverwalk, this is one of only a handful of monuments to honor civilians alongside military personnel.
