Civil War Statue in Washington Park Part 1

Did you know that Lorain used to have a Civil War statue in the park across from Lorain City Hall?

There are a few vintage postcards that show it through the years. A reproduction of a postcard (top) dating from around 1908 appeared in the Images of America book, showing the statue atop an ornate fountain. A more recent postcard (from the 50's or 60's?) shows the same statue atop a simple pedestal (below).
