Mrs. Myra R. Richards, of Indianapolis, was commissioned to sculpt a monument for General Lawton.
General Lawton became a major-general in the United States army and was killed at San Mateo, Luzon.
The monument is bronze. Three steps rise toward the center to form a simple base. At each end two Filipino figures, two and one-half feet high, lean in attitudes of grief. A palm tree, delicately outlined, rises at each corner with roots showing enough to decorate the base.
