ABOVE ALL THINGS TRUTH
Crusader, a huge granite statue of a knight in armor, stands in an open grassy area ringed with flowers and low bushes. No other grave markers are nearby, and no name appears on the Crusader itself. This is the grave of newspaper publisher Victor Lawson (1850-1925), who established the Chicago Daily News in 1875.
Crusader was carved in 1931 by famed sculptor Lorado Taft, the creator of Graceland's Eternal Silence.
