Americus - Spirit of American Doughboy - Sumter Co.

Rees Park, Turner at Rees Streets
The original statue was created in Americus by artist E. M. Viquesney at the behest of the residents of Berrien County, and stands in Nashville, Georgia.  The current Americus statue is a copper copy which stood in downtown Americus on Lee at Lamar Streets from 1921 to 1947.  More than 150 copies of the popular original from Nashville were mass-produced during the 1920s and 1930s, and stand in communities across Georgia and the nation.
