Daniel Chester French (1850-1931) is best known for his monuments of two icons of American history: the Minute Man in Concord, MA (1871-75) and the seated figure of Abraham Lincoln for the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, DC (1911-22). French completed over one hundred memorials and monuments during his productive career in Concord and later in New York  City and Stockbridge, Massachusetts.
