The Peace Monument
An ornate cenotaph with a heroic female representing Peace, on the front, and a relief panel on the rear. Stylized eagles decorate the upper corners of the cenotaph. The female stands in proper left profile dressed in armor, her hair upswept in a bun. She holds a United States shield with her proper left hand, in front of her. The bottom of the shield rests on the ground at her feet. Her full-length garment drapes over the projecting base on which she stands. Her proper right arm is outstretched, resting on a laurel twig on top of four furled flags that rest horizontally across the top center of the cenotaph. A sword in scabbard is strapped to her proper left side and hangs behind the shield.
The rear of the cenotaph contains a high relief featuring a battlefield nurse treating a wounded soldier. Below the relief is a deep trough that once served as a basin for the fountain. A tablet formed from metal taken from the battleship Maine also appears on the rear side of the cenotaph. Around the base of the sculpture is a curved bench. The sculpture is mounted upon a long, stepped base. Stone plant pedestals are placed on top of the base in front of the cenotaph on either side of the female figure.
