English: Bronze statue of 19th-century United States poet Fitz-Greene Halleck, the first set up in the New World to a poet. It was unveiled in May 1877 by President of the United States Rutherford B. Hayes, who, with his cabinet, the general of the army, and many eminent citizens, including the poets Bryant, Boker, and Bayard Taylor, were escorted from the residence of Halleck's biographer to Central Park by the New York 7th Regiment. Addresses were delivered by Bryant and William Allen Butler, and a poem written by John G. Whittier was read. The following year, Memorial of Fitz-Greene Halleck was published, containing the text of the addresses and poems delivered at the monument and statue celebrations, together with numerous portraits of the poet and other illustrations.
