Rough Rider Monument dedication ceremony and unveiling on the north side of the Yavapai County Courthouse in Prescott, Arizona. This picture was taken right before the unveiling of the bronze equestrian statue. The statue was created to honor the many men of the 1st U.S. Volunteer Calvary better know as the Rough Riders of the Spanish-American War (1898). However, many see this statue as a dedication to American hero Captain William "Buckey" Owen O'Neill who was a local Prescottonian and died for his country on Kettle Hill in Cuba July 1, 1898 during the Spanish-American War. This is a southward view looking around Gurley St. (in foreground) towards the courthouse. Note: This is the second Yavapai County Courthouse.
