Equestrian Statue of General Charles Devens
Standing in front of the Old Worcester County Courthouse, this monument depicts Worcester County’s only major general of the Civil War, Charles Devens, though it honours all men of the county who fought for the Union. Present at the dedication in July 1906 was soon-to-be President William H. Taft, who also made a brief address. The artist, Daniel Chester French, had designed Boston's Equestrian Statue of Joseph Hooker several years earlier.
