This is one of the many “pocket” parks in DC managed by the NPS. It is the statue of William Tecumseh Sherman, Civil War era general and famous for his “March to the Sea” cutting a wide swath of destruction in the South. You cannot walk up to the statue any longer, the rules of access to the area have tightened security and since 9/11 it is off limits. You can see the White House and the proximity to the statue. Still worthwhile to make the effort to see the scores of interesting statues that dot the District.
