General Alexander Macomb is a monumental statue in Detroit, Michigan, United States. The monument, designed by sculptor Adolph Alexander Weinman, was dedicated in 1908 in honor of Alexander Macomb, a Detroit native who had served as the Commanding General of the United States Army for several years in the early 1800s. The statue was dedicated on September 11, on the anniversary of the Battle of Plattsburgh, a War of 1812 battle that Macomb had participated in. In recent years, the statue has come under criticism due to Macomb's connections to slavery and the mistreatment of Native Americans.
