The price tag for the statue is expected to be around $250,000, and Liz Armstrong the founder of the Darby Day's group, says they want to make sure all funds for the statue are donated through private sector donation and that no city funding is being requested.
A formal announcement will be held on General Darby's birthday, February 8th, solidifying the group's plans.
Darby led the famous Darby's Rangers which evolved into today's US Army Rangers and was also made famous as a major motion picture.
Armstrong says, 'General Darby was one of our hometown hero's' and that 'He changed the world in many ways with Rangers, Ranger history.'
