Here is a website dedicated to information about General Worth’s obelisk in Manhattan; an excerpt:
General Worth was a military hero who fought in the Mexican-American War between 1846 and 1848. He died of cholera in 1849 and was originally buried in Greenwood Cemetery in Brooklyn; but in 1857 his body was moved to Manhattan and placed under the Worth Monument.
The monument was designed by James Goodwin Batterson and dedicated on November 25, 1857. The obelisk contains four sets of bands with the names of 16 places of importance in the life of Major General Worth. On the south facing front of the pedestal is a bronze tablet with a high relief of General Worth on horseback, with dress military uniform holding his sword in his right hand while pointing it forward. Above this figure is a complex trophy depicting cannons, swords, flags and eagles.
The dado on the east side of the obelisk contains the inscription: DUCIT AMOR PATRIAE (The Love Of Country Leads Me).
