The subject

As a member of the famed West Point Class of 1915, (known as "The Class the Stars Fell On"), Eisenhower rose to prominence as an Army officer during World War II, where he was the Supreme Allied Commander Europe. After the war, he served as the Army's Chief of Staff before being elected President in 1952.

Description and commissioning

The statue stands nine feet tall and is perched upon a pedestal of red granite.[2]

The bid for the monument originally included noted sculptors Donald De Lue, Felix De Weldon and Walker Hancock, but the commission went to class of 1953 West Point graduate Robert L. Dean, Jr.[3] After receiving the commission, Dean was offered one of the General's actual uniforms as a model by Eisenhower's son.[3] Dean molded the wax model at his home in Pennsylvania and cast the bronze statue in Italy before the monument was unveiled on 3 May 1983.[3]
