From www.va.gov:

This memorial to General Ward is a bronze standing figure and shows the General in a Continental Army uniform. It is on a granite pedestal. The model for his face was a life portrait by Charles Wilson Peale, located in Independence Hall at Philadelphia. General Ward was the first Commander-in-Chief of the American Armies in the Revolutionary War. He was relieved by General Washington in Boston. Dedicated in 1938.

According to Byron B. Rash's Footnote Washington (EPM Publications, 1983):

[The statue] was supposed to be equestrian but the high cost of bronze just before the outbreak of World War II eliminated the horse, which is why Major General Ward stands on his own two feet at the busy intersection.
