MacNeil Month 2022 ~ “Pillar #4”

By

Hermon A. MacNeil

The FOURTH Pillar of MacNeil Month 2022 is

Hermon Atkins MacNeil’s

General George Washington 

MacNeil’s George Washington

has not always been treated kindly. 

Vandals in June 2020 left their angry marks on

George Washington. 

Both Hermon MacNeil’s and Alexander Stirling Calder’s statues were covered with RED sploches of HATE.  The following post from  June 30, 2020

In 1974 Cecelia MacNeil decried  the condition of Hermon’s 1916 marble statue.(Above)

Six decades of  careless sandblasting and harsh cleaning left  the Commander  looking

more like a  LEPER  than

commander in Chief of the American Revolution.

Fortunately the Washington Arch and Washington Park

continues into its SECOND CENTURY

as a gathering place and a celebration place for

New Yorkers to call out to

the Nation and World.
