Civil War Sculptures in Lang Hall
Two bas-relief sculptures adorn the wall near the entrance to the Auditorium in Lang Hall at the University of Northern Iowa. One is the 2nd Iowa Infantry Regiment at Fort Donelson. The other is titled "Triumphal Return". Both were cast from sculptures on the Soldiers and Sailors Monument in Des Moines. These have been nicely restored and have a bronze appearance. Another similar cast of the original is located at Des Moines County Heritage Center in Burlington. Lang Hall is on the east edge of the UNI campus. Thanks to Gary Lettow for notification of these sculptures. Photos taken 2/1/12.
