President Rutherford B. Hayes, General Ralph P. Buckland, and John Lemmon worked diligently with Andrew Hickenlooper and the Society of the Army of the Tennessee to raise funds for the monument at McPherson's gravesite. The pedestrian statue, a bronze likeness of McPherson, fulfilled the original promise to place a memorial over his gravesite. Using their influence, the men raised funds for a second sculpture by Louis Rebisso of Cincinnati, Ohio.
