WATERBURY, CT, CT-041115JS82- The 48-foot tall Soldiers' Monument on the Green in Waterbury is an impressive sculpture by Civil War veteran and artist George E. Bissell. One of the four figure around the statue is this this woman reading to children in front of an eagle with the word "Emancipation" in his beak. Her feet on a canon with broken shackles. Beside the woman are two children, one white on the left and an African-American sitting on a bale of cotton.
