The War Horse

On September 17, 1997, the Virginia Historical Society unveiled The War Horse, a memorial to the horses and mules killed during the Civil War, designed by Tessa Pullan of Rutland, England, and given to the historical society by Paul Mellon of Upperville, VA.  Mounted on a six-foot base, the life-size bronze sculpture is on display at the Boulevard entrance to the VHS.
