Crucible Foundry casts nation's largest Hamilton statue.

The Crucible Foundry and Gallery, Norman, Okla., recently cast a bronze statue of an American forefather, Alexander Hamilton.

Following a design sculpted by Kristen Visbal, the statue, aptly named "The American Cape," features Hamilton as an orator donning a cape. The cape becomes the 13-star American flag from the 18th century.

The body of the statue measures 9 ft. in height (11 1/2, ft. including the flag), and it is the largest of any Hamilton sculpture in the country.

The American Cape now stands in Hamilton, Ohio.
