This is an E. M. Viquesney-sculpted pressed-copper figure of a WWI infantryman advancing through the stumps and barbed wire of No Man's Land, holding a rifle and grenade.  Originally located in Tillis Park, since approx. 1922, it was moved to the American Legion Post because of vandalism.  It is mounted on a fieldstone base and is dedicated to those who entered service from Fort Smith.
