100c 100m wwi centennial plaque In 1919, two young Glen Carbon residents, Emil Trentaz and Harry J. Seaton, were killed in battle in France.  After their deaths a group of Glen Carbon residents decided to recognize the two soldiers with a statue in their honor.  This group held carnivals and dances to raise funds as well as soliciting individual and business donations to help pay for the commissioned artwork.  In November 1920, the Doughboy Statue was erected in Glen Carbon Cemetery to stand over the soldiers' graves.
