The statue of Lajos Kossuth which was unveiled in 1914 stands in the middle of Kossuth Square. One of the accessory figures is Imre Szacsvay who was Parliamentary Registrar and editor of the Declaration of Independence and for this latter act he was executed at the end of the War of Independence of 1848-49. Next to him you can see the statue of Baron Zsigmond Perényi, Second President of the Upper House who was also executed in 1849. The figure towering behind them is Mihály Könyves Tóth, Kossuth’s army chaplain, who was also sentenced to death but could redeem his life with seven years imprisonment. On the right of Kossuth the standard-bearer of the redcaps says good-bye to his mother on his way to the battle.
