  Morton Statue
by grkboiler

In front of the east entrance of the State House is a statue of Oliver P. Morton (1823-1877). He was the 14th governor of Indiana (1861-1867) and served during the Civil War. He was also a US Senator from 1867 until his death. The soldiers on each side represent the good treatment towards Indiana's soldiers that Morton was popular for.
