Even his former enemy King George III called him the greatest character of the age. At his death in 1. Element Os. American Revolution and the new nation republican virtue and devotion to civic duty. Washington was the unchallenged public icon of American military and civic patriotism. He was also identified with the Federalist Party, which lost control of the national government in 1. Jeffersonian Republicans, who were reluctant to celebrate the hero of the opposition party. Proposals for a memorialeditStarting with victory in the Revolution, there were many proposals to build a monument to Washington. After his death, Congress authorized a suitable memorial in the national capital, but the decision was reversed when the Democratic Republican Party Jeffersonian Republicans took control of Congress in 1. The Republicans were dismayed that Washington had become the symbol of the Federalist Party furthermore the values of Republicanism seemed hostile to the idea of building monuments to powerful men. They also blocked his image on coins or the celebration of his birthday. Further political squabbling, along with the North South division on the Civil War, blocked the completion of the Washington Monument until the late 1. By that time, Washington had the image of a national hero who could be celebrated by both North and South, and memorials to him were no longer controversial. As early as 1. 78. Continental Congress had resolved That an equestrian statue of George Washington be erected at the place where the residence of Congress shall be established. The proposal called for engraving on the statue which explained it had been erected in honor of George Washington, the illustrious Commander in Chief of the Armies of the United States of America during the war which vindicated and secured their liberty, sovereignty, and independence. Currently, there are two equestrian statues of President Washington in Washington, D. C. One is located in Washington Circle at the intersection of the Foggy Bottom and West End neighborhoods at the north end of the George Washington University, and the other is in the gardens of the National Cathedral. Ten days after Washingtons death, a Congressional committee recommended a different type of monument. John Marshall, a Representative from Virginia who later became Chief Justice of the United States proposed that a tomb be erected within the Capitol.

The citizens of Baltimore had chosen him to build a monument to Washington, and he had designed a tall Greek column surmounted by a statue of the President.

The obelisk was to be 7. C at the base and 4. Both the obelisk and pillar were hollow within which a railway spiraled up. The obelisk had no doorway instead its interior was entered from the interior of the pillar upon which it was mounted. The pillar had an arched way at its base.
