McClellan occupies a superbsituation at the highest point of ConnecticutAvenue, and was erected in 1907, by the SouthernArmy of the Potomac and Congrec Augustus Saint Gaudens (1848-1907) is repsented in Washington by the famous Adams Monu-ment, erected in Rock (reek Cemetery, to the mem- of a woman who died, it is said, under tragiccircumstances.

Augustus Saint (iaudens public Statuary 383 block of granite, and leaning against a large, pol! slab of the same material. Tins slab formsthe centre of an hexagonal plot, about twenty feetin diameter, while opposite, and occupying threesides of the hexagon, is a massive -tone bench. The whole is placed within a dense growth of ever greens, which completely screen the monument from view; an effective, if rather gruesome set-ting, which accentuates the mysterious and awe-some character of the sepulchral figure. Saint Gaudens has embodied his emotional ideain the form of a womans figure, wrapped aboutin coarse drapery that shrouds her head, and fallsin long, loose, heavy folds at her feet. The figureis in bronze, vigorous in modelling and compel-ling and forceful in its illusion of suspended anima-tion. The effect is profoundly realistic.
