One monument that stood out was an incredibly intricate knight-looking statue that turned out to be the Archangel Gabriel. Gabriel marks the grave of John Hay (1839-1905), who was secretary to President Abraham Lincoln and served as U.S. Secretary of State under McKinley.
The inscription on the tablet says:
The fruit of righteousness is Sown in peace Of them that Make peace
The stunning statue was sculpted by James Earle Fraser, who is known for creating numerous works in Washington, D.C., such as one at the Supreme Court and another at the Treasury. He also designed the Victory Medal, the Navy Cross and the Buffalo-head nickel.
The statue marking Hays’ grave was completed in 1914.
