Monuments are designed to encapsulate and preserve history so that future generations have access to the lessons of the past. However, a memorial or a statue can only show so much about an event of history, and thus, the creators of these monuments attempt to symbolically connote meaning in their work. The statue of John C.

Calhoun is portrayed as a powerful and notable figure through the messages and aesthetics of the statue itself, and the hidden meanings they carry.
