  • Monument– A bronze statue and stone shaft in Confederation Park, 123 Laurier Avenue West, Ottawa, ON is a monument to the Ottawa volunteers who died in the South African War. Made by the sculptor, Hamilton MacCarthy, it was installed here in 1969, after several moves. Its original location was near the old City Hall which used to stand on Elgin Street. Some believe that the model for the soldier was the sculptor's son, Coeur de Lion MacCarthy, who made many of the carvings for the Centre Block. Other works by the father include the Champlain monument at Nepean Point and that of Ottawa mayor, Samuel Bingham, in Notre-Dame Cemetery in Vanier.
