Restoration Continues On "Black Hawk" Statue

The time has finally come. After years of fund-raising, months of tests, and waiting for recent state approval, an effort has begun to restore the  statue almost universally known as "Black Hawk." Lorado Taft created it 103 years ago on a bluff overlooking the Rock River near Oregon, Ill. Taft called it "The Eternal Indian."
