The design of the figure and the choose of the subject was done in collaboration with the well known artist Keith Rocco.

Mr. Keith Rocco and us, we were talking about to search a subject who was involved in the history of Chicago and the Civil War, finding in Col. Elmer E Ellsworth the perfect candidate.

The life of Col. Ellswoth though short, was very intense after all. His contribution to the american Army was very important. To him ought the creation of zouave regiments, whose “zouave craze” helped to recruit a lot of people into its ranks, and in the time of the civil war, in both sides, north and south.

To him was commissioned the command of the Chicago Zouave Cadets. And in the first days of the struggle, he was the first casulaty of the war, finding their destiny climbing down the stairs of the Marshal House Inn, in Alexandria, Virginia the 24th of may 1861.

Was cried for a large part of the northern society, included the President Lincoln. Proclaimed as a martir of the northern cause, his death led thousands to be recruited, and were formed a lot of new regiments, eager to fight.
