— Rudolf Siemering (1835 - 1905) —

This bronze monument portrays the nation's first president, George Washington, in his role as commander in chief during the Revolutionary War (1775 - 1783). The allegorical figures on the pedestal represent Washington's era in American history. The groups arranged around the lower level show Native American people as well as animals and plants of the period.

The monument was donated to the City of Philadelphia by the State Society of the Cincinnati of Pennsylvania, a group of descendants of Revolutionary War officers.
