In 1884 Edmonia Lewis was born. She was born in Greenbush, New York, and would go on to do be a great sculptor.
She became more well known in 1864 when she sculpted part of a Cilvil War hero, Robert Shaw. She sculpted more of them and moved to Rome. She became well known there too, and made money off of selling sculptures.
In 1907 the word came out that Edmonia Lewis had died. The tragic event happened in London, England when she had a kidney disease and we lost her. Over her life she sculpted many statues and made people happy.
