Thomas B. Dunn Monument, Allegheny Cemetery

Thomas B. Dunn died at the Battle of Five Forks in 1865, less than a week before Lee surrendered at Appomattox. This elaborate romantic trophy-tombstone crowds every symbol of martial victory into a busy but harmonious composition. (Although much of the inscription is obliterated, cemetery records confirm that the half-obscured family name is Dunn.)
