This nine foot tall sculpture was created by Bruce Wilder Saville (1893 - 1938), depicting a WWI soldier returning home from vic­tory. He holds his rifle and a German soldier's helmet. It was dedi­cated on April 6, 1926, and was part of the War Memorial Wing of the old State Museum on the Ohio State University campus. It was moved in August of 1970 to the top of the dome of the Ohio His­torical Center, and in 1991 was moved to the center's entrance.
