Last year on the cover of our Production,
Resource & Location Guide appeared a very
contemporary building located on the campus
of MIT created exactly one hundred years after
the dedication of an equestrian statue of General
Charles Devens, located at the Worcester, MA
Charles Devens was a lawyer, Massachusetts
State Senator and General in the Union army.
When the war started he was a major in the
3rd Battalion of Massachusetts Rifles. He was appointed colonel of the 15th Massachusetts Infantry in July 1861 and brigadier general of volunteers in April 1862.
General Devens fought in the Battles of Ball’s Bluff, Fredericksburg, Chancellorsville, Cold Harbor, and the Siege of Petersburg. He was wounded in battle at Ball’s Bluff and again at Chancellorsville. Later Devens was named Attorney General during the Presidency of Rutherford B. Hayes.
The bronze statue of General Devens was created by Edward Clark Potter and Daniel Chester French. It was dedicated on July 4, 1906.
Interesting to note that state-of-the art New England Studios is located in Devens,
MA on the former Camp Devens that became Devens Army Base and served the
nation for 79 years.
