The statue of John Harvard, commemorating his founding of the university in 1638. Actually, that sentence has three lies in it:

  1. John Harvard didn't found the university, he just donated so much to it that it was named after him a couple of years after is was founded.

  2. The university was founded in 1636.

  3. The person depicted isn't John Harvard - nobody knows what he looked like. Somebody else sat as model.

Benjamin Franklin. This is the first statue in the US that showed the person depicted in typical clothes. Other statues, such as the one of Quincy Adams just ten meters away, used the old heroic / roman style of clothing.
