|Sculptor Retained For Proposed Statue
of Young "Jeb" Stuart at Laurel Hill
The Board of Directors of the J.E.B. Stuart Birthplace Trust, Inc., is pleased to announce the commission of noted sculptor
Allen F. Weidhaas of Stuart, Virginia. After much agonizing about an earlier equestrian design that portrayed the General at the peak of his career, the focus has been placed "closer to home"; Laurel Hill is where the noted Civil War figure was born and raised for the first part of his life, therefore, the sculpture shall reflect the beginning rather than the end (however glorious!)
