(The Industrial Exposition site was purchased in 1883 for the U.S. Post Office, which was razed in 1943.) The marble statue had been sold in 1871 by Louisville monument maker Michael Muldoon for $10,000 to the Polytechnic Society of Kentucky, forerunner of the Louisville Free Public Library. The work is now on loan to the Speed Art Museum, where it has been conserved and is on display. " [Februar
