Saint-Gaudens National Historic Site / by Dave Hileman

This is the home of August Saint-Gaudens who was America's premier sculptor and world famous during the last part of the 19th century. He produced amazing monuments. His Standing Lincoln in Chicago is considered one of the finest portrait statues ever made and the monument to Shaw and the Massachusetts regiment he led now installed in the Boston Commons is striking in the detail of the individual soldiers. It is New Hampshire's only National Park Service site. Though with all of the beautiful places I have been in NH I am at a loss to know why this is the only site. Perhaps, Live Free or Die is more than a motto?
