Admiral David Glasgow Farragut, also known as the Admiral Farragut Monument, is an outdoor bronze sculpture of David Farragut by sculptor Augustus Saint-Gaudens on an exedra designed by architect Stanford White, located in Madison Square in Manhattan, New York. The statue, cast in 1880 and dedicated on May 25, 1881, is set on a Coopersberg (Pennsylvania) black granite pedestal.[1]
