On the north side of Capitol Square stands a winged female figure clad in flowing garments, holding aloft the universal symbol of peace: an olive branch. This is the statue Peace. Though erected soon after the completion of the First World War, this monument honors those who served in the American Civil War and supported the war effort at home. The Women's Relief Corps, the auxiliary of the largest and most influential Civil War veterans' organization, the Grand Army of the Republic, commissioned the statue from Bruce Wilder Saville, a faculty member at The Ohio State University.
