When you stroll Chicago's largest park, you encounter giants of history and literature celebrated in enduring bronze: Lincoln, LaSalle, Grant, Schiller, Shakespeare, Hamilton, Goethe, Sheridan. . . .
Why did our Chicago forefathers memorialize these heroes? What were their triumphs? Who erected this monumental art? Author and illustrator Krista August unveils the forgotten histories behind Lincoln Park's vintage monuments with historical photographs and highlights from her award-winning book, Giants in the Park: A Guide to Portrait Statues in Chicago's Lincoln Park.
