The Statues Near the Sculpture Gardens

Surrounding the Sculpture Gardens, there are dozens of big bronze statues of people. We decided to write about these things for a number of reasons. The first reason is that we’ve never even heard of most of these people. Since the Sculpture Gardens are sort of close to Valley Forge, one would think that they would have George Washington or another hero of the Revolutionary War, but they have people that we’ve never even heard of. They even have this Viking there. Some of them might be people from the Revolutionary War, but we can’t tell because the descriptions they usually have on the bottom of statues are almost impossible to see. As you can see from the picture, whoever designed the inscription was not the best. So they might be people from the Revolutionary War, but since we can’t see the words and since they are not famous people, we can’t tell who they are.

The last thing we noticed about these statue is that one of them has very square fingers. We thought that was amusing. Anyway, I hope you’ve enjoyed reading, and if you ever visit these statues and can recognize them, then you really know your history.
