General John Logan Memorial, also known as the John Alexander Logan Monument,[1] is an outdoor bronze sculpture commemorating John A. Logan by sculptors Augustus Saint-Gaudens and Alexander Phimister Proctor and architect Stanford White, installed in Chicago's Grant Park, in the U.S. state of Illinois. The monument was created during 1894–1897 and dedicated on July 22, 1897. Henry-Bonnard Bronze Company served as the founder, and additional assistance was provided by Daniel H. Burnham, Annette Johnson, and Mary Lawrence Tonetti.[2]

In 1968, during the anti-war protests surrounding the Democratic National Convention, demonstrators climbed the statue and organizers spoke from in front of its base.
