Utica

Soldiers' and Sailors' Monument located in Utica, New York. Cast in 1891. One of the most controversial of Gerhardt's works. Hartford architect George Keller claimed in his memoirs that Gerhardt took Keller's design and submitted it to the Utica committee. Keller's memoirs leave the impression he was never properly paid nor credited for the design. Keller's memoirs regarding the controversy were published in George Keller, Architect by David Ransom (1978). The Utica monument features a bronze female figure representing Utica. The base features two female figures representing Peace and Victory. Two bronze male figures represent the Navy and Army.
