This "Dapper" young fellow is a statue of a Richmond Howitzer. On a recent trip to Richmond, he was found in Harrison Street Park, which is located at Harrison, Park Streets & Grove Avenue.
The park is also known as "Howitzer Park". In years gone by, the City Council donated $1000.00 to erect the statue in honor of the Richmond Howitzer Battalion. It was sculpted by William L. Sheppard, a former Howitzer.
