Col. William Hall Sculpture
William Hall was born in 1832 and moved to Davenport, Iowa in 1854. He became the Colonel of the Iowa 11th Infantry Regiment and was in battles at Shiloh, Corinth and, later, at Atlanta. He was the commander of "Crocker's Iowa Brigade" during the Atlanta Campaign but resigned in disgust after the Battle of Atlanta on July 22, 1864 when Col. William Belknap of the Iowa 15th was promoted over him.
According to the NPS web site, this bronze relief portrait was erected in 1915 at a cost of $180. The scuptor was Theo Alice Ruggles Kitson. The sculpture is located past the Wisconsin monument and near the monument for "Crocker's Iowa Brigade". Photo taken 10/5/08.
