John Paul Jones

The first monument raised in Potomac Park, in 1912, immortalizes the spiritual father of the United States Navy, and the best-known naval hero of the Revolutionary War. A fitting tribute to John Paul Jones' dignity and tenacity, the memorial depicts Jones in 10-foot-tall bronze, cast by New York sculptor Charles H. Niehaus.
