Albert Pike Statue Washington DC

Albert Pike is the only Confederate military officer or figure to be honored with an outdoor statue in Washington, D.C. The monument can be found in Judiciary Square. This bronze standing figure of Brigadier General Pike honors him as an author, poet, jurist, orator, scholar, soldier, philanthropist, philosopher, and 33 degree Freemason. The statue (Sculptor - Gaetano Trentanove) of Albert Pike is placed on a granite pedestal on which is seated a bronze figure of the Goddess of Masonry. He is dressed in a double-breasted vest and long coat. Congressman James Richardson from Tennessee, introduced an 1898 resolution: It called for the federal government to provide federal land to put up a statue honoring the Scottish Rite Masons Grand Commander. The statue was dedicated on October 23, 1901 in front of the Scottish Rite House of the Temple. In 1977 the monument was relocated to its present site between the Department of Labor building and the Municipal Building, between 3rd and 4th Streets, on D Street, NW.

The Choctaw Nation of Oklahoma signed a favorable treaty with Confederate General Albert Pike on July 12, 1861
