“As surprising as it may seem, the connection between the monument honoring Paul Revere in Boston and the statue atop the Latter-day Saint temple in Salt Lake City is not as improbable as one might assumer. Though most people would never consciously associate the two statues, both share more in common than merely being symbols of heritage. This paper considers two of Cyrus E. Dallin’s most visible works: the Paul Revere monument in Boston, Massachusetts, and the angel Moroni statue atop the Latter-day Saint temple in Salt Lake City.” (taken from author's introduction)
