This monument honors the 700 men from Belleville who served in the Great War, and the 20 men who gave their lives whose names are enumerated on a shield plaque. It consists of an allegorical bronze female figure representing Victory holding a shield and quill pen in her left hand, and a bouquet of flowers in the crook of her right arm. She wears a laurel wreath in her hair.

The sculpture sits atop a square stone base. Dedicated in 1922, it was designed by New York sculptor, Carl Emerson Tefft.
