—Hermon Atkins MacNeill (1866-1947) —Designed as a formal gateway to the Benjamin Franklin Parkway, there 40-foot pylons of Tennessee marble commemorate military men of the Civil war. The figures at the base of the north column portray soldiers, and the group of the south column honors sailorss. Carved in relief, a stately allegorical female figure rises high on each pylon, with an American eagle on top.
