But when we erect public statues of victorious men on horses (always men, always horses)

Does Hamilton have a single statue of a victorious man on a horse? I have not been to Battlefield Park for a while, but do not remember any equestrian statues there. Google certainly knows of no such statue

As an Army veteran, I can certainly affirm the sentiment on the dedication stone of the Battlefield Park monument:

More dearly than their lives they held those principles and traditions of British liberty of which Canada is the inheritor.

As far as I know, the only public statue we have in Hamilton of a military commander is of a woman, and she is not on a horse.
