This copper sheet sculpture was designed as part of the 150th anniversary of St. Anthony's Church. The base which supports the sculpture houses the original bell from the church (built in 1837, at the inception of the city of Davenport). In its early days, the bell was also used as a fire alarm.

The figures depicted in this work are:

  • Black Hawk
  • Antoine LeClaire
  • Col. George Davenport
  • Rev. Samuel Mazzucheill, the priest who founded St. Anthony's Church
