Locally known as the "Black Angel," this solid bronze structure was inspired by three visions experienced by the wife of General Grenville M. Dodge in the fall of 1916, before her death. Daniel Chester French, who created the seated statue of Abraham Lincoln in the Washington D.C. Lincoln Memorial, sculpted a likeness of this angel in Mrs. Dodge's vision.
