This monument is constructed of rusticated pink granite.  Its base consists of two slabs with the upper face of the smaller second slab angled inward to meet the bottom edges of the battered granite pier that comprises the bulk of the monument.  The pier is surmounted by a ball resting on a base slab.  A bronze eagle. with head to the side and wings open. sits atop the ball.  A bronze plaque topped by a fleur-de-lis motif & garlands is placed in the center of the front face of the pier. This plaque commemorates Collingswood residents who served in World War I.
