One Man in His Time

I am reading One Man in His Time by Ellen Glasgow. The title comes from Shakespeare's As You Like It, the part starting with All the world's a stage . . .

The novel is set in Richmond Virginia. Many scenes are set in Capitol Square, and the statue of George Washington there is mentioned several times. The huge bronze monument was sculpted by Thomas Crawford and was put in place in 1858.
