The Great Chicago Statue Quiz #1

This blog originated on the Tribune‘s ChicagoNow platform in 2009.  One of the features was a quiz on Chicago’s statues.  When I moved to WBEZ in 2011, I substituted a Chicago Trivia Quiz during Tony Sarabia’s “Morning Show” broadcast, and stopped doing the statues on the blog.

Public monuments have been in the news recently, so now is an appropriate time to look at some of the people honored with statues in and around Chicago.  No prizes, just a little fun!

(1) WHO is this?

(2) WHERE is this?

(3) WHY does this person deserve a statue?

    In front of Tribune Tower

    Col. McCormick wanted to teach the unwashed masses about a young man who sacrificed his life for the revolution.

    This statue is more gruesome than it appears. Notice the ropes tying his feet together. Are his hands tied behind his back?
