CONSISTENT LEADERSHIP is the theme of this sculpture.

"Let us be consistent in all of our actions. Asking nothing for ourselves which we are not willing to yield to others."

A Civil War veteran, Hinton became known as a powerful Republican campaigner, speaking in numerous states. He became the first African American to hold state office in Indiana and the first African American to serve in the Indiana state legislature.
