Even on a windless day the cape swirls around this hero of three revolutionary wars. As a young man, Francisco de Miranda (1750-1816) commanded Spanish forces in support of the American Revolution. Later the native Venezuelan led troops in the French Revolution. He is especially famous, though, for his efforts to free Latin America from Spain. Briefly he led an independent Venezuela until Spain counterattacked. He died in a Spanish prison.
The Venezuelan government commissioned this bronze sculpture as a gift to the City of Philadelphia.
