His story is woven through six of his major works of art, which include the Standing Lincoln in Lincoln Park, Chicago; the Shaw Memorial on Boston Common; the Sherman Monument in Central Park; the serenely beautiful Diana in the Philadelphia Museum of Art; and the Adams Memorial in Washington, DC. 2009 (56 min.)
