Quick Overview

Rough Rider Monument dedication ceremony and unveiling on the north side of the Yavapai County Courthouse in Prescott, Arizona. This picture was taken during the unveiling of the bronze equestrian statue sculpted by Solon H. Borglum. The statue was created to honor the many men of the 1st U.S. Volunteer Calvary better known 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 died at Kettle Hill in Cuba fight for his country. The man of the left pulling the rope to reveal the statue is Buckey and Pauline O'Neill's adopted son, Maurice O'Neill and the woman pulling the rope on the right side is the daughter of Buckey's long-time friend Micheal Hickey, Miss Kate Hickey. Michael Hickey was the one instigated the fundraising for this monument.
