Bernardo de G?lvez
(Count de G?lvez)
1746 - 1786

"Bernardo de G?lvez the great Spanish soldier carried out a courageous campaign in lands
bordering the lower Mississippi. This masterpiece of military strategy lightened the pressure of the English in the war against the American settlers who were fighting for their independence.

"May the statue of Bernardo de G?lvez serve as a reminder that Spain offered the blood of her soldiers for the cause of American independence."

Excerpts of a speech given on this location on June 3, 1976 by His Majesty
