Tadeusz Kosciuszko (1746–1817) was a Polish, Belarusian and Lithuanian national hero, and an honorary citizen of France who fought in the American Revolution under George Washington. In recognition of his dedicated and faithful service he was brevetted by the Continental Congress to the rank of Brigadier General in 1783, and became a naturalized citizen of the United States that same year.
This statue, erected in 1927 to commemorate the 150th anniversary of the enlistment of Kosciuszko into the Continental Army, is the work of Theo Ruggles Kitson (1876-1932), one of the most prolific female bronze sculptors in America who also designed the world renowned statue of the Minuteman at the Lexington Battle Green. The sculpture portrays Kosciuszko holding the plans for the future West Point. The statue is located near the Boylston Street entrance of the Public Gardens.
Have a great weekend everyone!

It is cold in the Northeastern U.S. as you can see from these pigeons huddled near the base of this light post. It isn't quite as cold here as in the Midwest and Canada, but 10 degrees Fahrenheit (-12C) is chilly no matter how you measure it.

Massachusetts 54th Volunteer Regiment
Across from the State House is the Robert Gould Shaw Monument built in 1897 in honor of the Massachusetts 54th Regiment, the first all-Black regiment recruited in the North to fight for the Union army during the Civil War. The monument by Augustus Saint-Gaudens is part of the Boston Black Heritage Trail. A famous composition by Charles Ives, "Col. Shaw and his Colored Regiment," the opening movement of Three Places in New England, is based both on this monument and the regiment.
