The J. E. B. Stuart Monument is a deconstructed monument to Confederate general J. E. B. Stuart at the head of historic Monument Avenue in Richmond, Virginia, which was dedicated in 1907. The equestrian statue of General Stuart was removed from its pedestal and placed into storage on July 7, 2020 after having stood there for 113 years. The removal was in response to nationally reported events of police brutality and a corresponding emergency declaration in Virginia.[1] The granite pedestal, which stood empty for nineteen months, was finally dismantled in February 2022

FRAME IS 11" X 7" ~ BLACK PAINTED GLASS WITH GOLD ACCENTS AT EACH CORNER ~ SMALL AMOUNT OF PAINT MISSING AT UPPER RIGHT ~ THE SILHOUETTE IS OF GENERAL ROBERT E. LEE WITH FACSIMILE SIGNATURE AT LEFT ~ SIGNED BEATRIX SHERMAN AT BOTTOM

Beatrix Sherman's first documented silhouettes were shown at the Twenty-Sixth Annual Exhibition of Water Colors, and Pastels and Miniatures by American Artists held by the Art Institute of Chicago from May 7 to June 7, 1914.[4] At the exhibition, Sherman displayed six pieces, five of which were silhouettes.
Sherman attended her first major exhibition at the Panama Pacific International Exposition (PPIE) held in San Francisco in 1915. It was around this time that she greatly increased the amount of work she produced, cutting as many silhouettes as she possibly could. She also began keeping guest books to document the signatures of the subjects she cut. There are six known surviving guest books, all in private collections. The one used at the PPIE was sold at auction in May 2006.[5] T. Roosevelt, 1918 (Private Collection) Lafayette, 1928 (Private Collection) Sherman often compared herself to August Edouart, a well-known 19th century French silhouette artist who kept books with an extra copy of each sitter's silhouette. This not only allowed Edouart to keep a visual record of his work, but also allowed him to cut copies of silhouettes for sale at a later date.[6] Beatrix Sherman emulated August Edouart by numbering or making a notation on the back of each of her silhouettes, enabling her to create an extensive personal archive that included both silhouettes and her sitter's autographs. Often she would write comments on the verso of the silhouette noting both the location and anything else of interest about the sitter or the process of cutting the silhouette. Sherman's use of scissors in lieu of a camera created a collection that documented society in both an old fashioned and personal way. She even began to experiment with larger silhouettes, and in Fall of 1925, Beatrix Sherman advertised in The New Yorker, offering to cut not only single but also family silhouettes to be made into Christmas cards. Keeping a permanent studio in New York City through the 1950s, Sherman traveled extensively cutting silhouettes. Attending six World Fairs, in 25 years, she attempted to expand the traditional boundaries of the silhouette artist, doing more than simply cutting a quick and inexpensive portrait of the sitter. Her efforts to adapt her profession to changing times allowed her both greater economic and artistic freedom. Even from an early age, she had begun copyrighting silhouettes of a number of the famous people she cut. Reproductions of presidents Theodore Roosevelt, Woodrow Wilson and Herbert Hoover were copyrighted in 1918.[7] Beatrix Sherman attended art classes at The Arts Students League, eventually becoming a lifetime member.[8] It was possibly around this time that she first created Silhouette Stick-on-Figures, packages of small themed miniature silhouette figures with various decorative uses. She not only printed silhouettes of famous historical people, including Napoleon, Dickens, Lafayette and Washington, but designed mats and frames for her silhouettes. Sherman also printed a series of nursery rhymes in three colors, complete with accompanying silhouette illustrations.

Lieutenant Colonel Jacob Wilson Aderhold was born on 28 Nov 1826 in Bibb or Dekalb county, GA. Much of his early life was spent in and around Macon, GA. As a young man of about 20 years of age he enlisted, apparently under the name Wilson J. Aderhold, as a private in the Georgia Regiment of Volunteers for the Mexican War.
He stayed with the company throughout the war, survived battles and disease, earning a fine record as a soldier. After the Mexican war Jacob returned to Macon and was married on 1 Jun 1848 to Miss Harriet Jane Wagnon also of Macon. She was born about 1830 in Georgia. In 1860 they were living in Godfrey, Bibb county, GA where he is listed as a "sportsman". They had at least one child, a son Henry, who was born about 1854 in GA.

At the start of the Civil War, Jacob organized a company at Macon with himself as Captain (also known as Company A 1st Battalion GA Inf, CSA) on 15 Mar 1861. He was promoted to full Major on 18 Nov 1862 and then to Lieut. Colonel on 20 Nov 1862. Though the company records drop him from the roll on 02 Sep 1863 in Chattanooga, TN , he himself stated that he served until the close of the war and his obituary states that he was awarded a badge of honor for his bravery at the end of the war. After the war, he again returned to his family in Bibb county where they are found in 1870 residing in Macon. In both the 1870 and 1880 census Jacob has no occupation listed. In 1880 his son, Henry, is living nearby with his wife Rosa and 2 children. There is also a daughter, Ella, age 13 living with Jacob, but she was not in the 1870 census. Jacob and his family remained in Macon until 1880 when, according to his obituary, after his business in Macon failed the family moved to Kissimmee, FL. Harriet died in 1883 and is buried at Rose Hill Cemetery near Kissimmee. On 2 Oct 1883 Ella Aderhold married Robert J. Sears in Orange county, FL. On 8 Sep 1885 Jacob married Miss Mary J. Cross in Orange county (Osceola county was not formed until 1887). She was a generation younger having been born Nov 1865 in GA and was also from Macon. Jacob and Mary had four more children: Viola (born Jan 1889 and possibly married Charles B. Green); Wilson (died about 20 Aug 1896); George (born Oct 1895, died 7 Oct 1907); and Frederick (born Feb 1898). Jacob's house is said to have been among the first to settle Kissimmee and he built the second house on the site. When Kissimmee's population had risen to several hundred, Jacob built the "Kissimmee Hotel" which later burned down in 1883. In 1887 Jacob was a notary public in the firm of Aderhold & Johnston, real estate agents on Broadway southwest corner Darlington. His residence was on Park between Main ave and Aderhold. He later embarked in the drug business, under the name of Aderhold & Burley. Jacob was a leader in the growth and development of the city and held many political offices. Among them, he was an early mayor of Kissimmee holding the position in 1891, 1892, a supervisor of registration for the county in 1900 and again mayor for seven years in succession from 1900 to 1906. Because of his interest and encouragement in building the Osceola county seat, he had been called "The Father of Kissimmee" during his own lifetime. The family was hit by grief in early 1907 when Ella Aderhold Sears died on January 14th. As stated she had been listed as a daughter of Jacob and Harriet Jane Aderhold in the 1880 census, but in her obituary she is stated to be the sister of Mrs. J. W. Aderhold. Then sometime in the spring or summer of the year Jacob's eldest son, George, was afflicted with "affection of the head" which eventually developed into meningitis and he died on 7 Oct 1907. Shortly after this, at the age of 81, Jacob's health was failing and he applied for a pension for his Civil War service from the state of Florida on 19 Oct 1907. Just before 2 Aug 1909, at the age of 83 and suffering from Brights disease and a cancerous growth on his face, Jacob left Kissimmee to live with his daughter in Tampa (by 1910 she was Mrs. Charles B. Greene). Upon his death in Tampa on 3 Apr 1911, he was the only remaining charter member of the Friendship Lodge No. 10 of the Knights of Pythias of Kissimmee. A large number of those members met his remains at the railroad station and laid them to rest in Rose Hill cemetery with the beautiful and impressive rites of that order, in the presence of a large concourse of sorrowing friends. Ella Aderhold Sears husband Robert Joseph Sears was the son of Dr. William Joseph Sears who also moved from neighboring Schley county, GA to Kissimmee. Robert and Ella had one son Joe who died in 1956 in Duval county. Robert died in 1953. All three are buried in Rose Hill cemetery. It is uncertain what happened to Henry Aderhold who was living with wife Rosa and 2 children in the 1880 census, but Jacob's obituary states that he has two grandchildren living in California. Jacob's children George and Wilson had died young, prior to Jacob's death. His daughter Viola is likely the daughter in his obituary that is said to be the wife of C. B. Green and Frederick was only 13 years old at the time of his father's death. Henry, Ella, George and Wilson, all having died prior to Jacob's death, are not mentioned in his obituary, nor is Ella's son mentioned.
