The Civil War Monument is a restoration of a 150 year old Marble soldier and base located in front of the court house in Rock Island Illinois. The condition of the marble has degraded so bad that is was usafe and in need of resoration or replacement.

It was decided to replace the soldier with a bronze replica and I was commissioned to sculpt it to the exact dimensions and detail as the original artist W L Volk.

It will be placed on a redisigned base and the dedication will be on the 150th anniversary in April 2019.
