This sculpture is one of many casts made from EM Viquesney's doughboy design. Monuments using this design are scattered around NJ & the United States.
The sculpture, set upon a concrete base, depicts a World War I infantryman advancing through the stumps and barbed wire of "No Man's Land." He holds a rifle in his left hand & a grenade in his raised right hand.
The monument was donated in 1922 by Dover Township resident, Peter C. Buck.
