This is a statue that resides in a nearby park commemorating the American victory in the Revolutionary War. It is of Southern Army General Nathanael Greene atop his horse. In the 1700's Thoroughbreds were bred with the Narraganset Pacer and the foundation for the American Saddlebred was laid. I have been reading many books on horses and I read that the Saddlebred was the preferred mount for many generals during the civil war. Take a look at this magnificent horse...do you think he was an early American Saddle Horse?
