Franklin Simmons built this massive Civil War Monument in 1891. The people of Portland honored the soldiers and sailors who died fighting in the Civil War. This bronze statue is of Nike, the goddess of victory. Nike, as well as the other figures on the monument, were sculptured in Rome, Italy, by Franklin Simmons, a Maine native.
