Located on the Gurley St. side of the Courthouse Plaza in Prescott, AZ • “Erected by Arizona in honor of the 1st U.S. Volunteer Cavalry. Known to history as Roosevelt’s Rough Riders and in memory of Captain William O’Neill and his comrades who died while serving their country in the War with Spain.” “This free-spirited Son of the West, sensitive to the changing era in which he lived, portrayed the western epic in marble and bronze. Our “Bucky O’Neill” monumental bronze is among his greatest works, and is acclaimed by art critics as one of the finest equestrian monuments in the world.” The Bucky O’Neill sculpture by Jack Osmer is a replica of Solon Borglum’s statue. Solon Borglum was the brother of Gutzon Borglum who sculpted Mt. Rushmore in South Dakota. The statue was purchased by the city in 1907.
