This is a picture of the refurbished statue to celebrate the end of the Spanish American War. There are, of course, two ways to view the Spanish American War. Either it was a war fought against Spanish aggression in support of the desire for freedom by our Cuban neighbors. Or.... It is a trumped up war of choice by the US to gain the colonies of Puerto Rico, Guam, Philippines and a client state in Cuba. Ask the Puerto Ricans. But it was a different time and everyone else was doing it.
However, it is a gorgeous statue.
