English: At the western side of Madison Square Park in Manhattan, New York City, on an island bordered by Broadway, Fifth Avenue, and 25th Street, stands the Worth Monument, an obelisk designed by James Goodwin Batterson which was erected in 1857 over the tomb of General William Jenkins Worth, who served in the Seminole Wars and the Mexican War, and for whom Fort Worth, Texas was named, as well as Worth Street in lower Manhattan. The city's Parks Department designated the area immediately around the monument as a parklet called General Worth Square. Worth's monument was one of the first to be erected in a city park since the statue of George III was removed from Bowling Green in 1776. The city's second-oldest monument, it is the only one in the city except for Grant's Tomb that doubles as a mausoleum.
