E.M. Viquesney

This sculpture currently sits atop a limestone pedestal at the South entrance of Linn Park, flanking the later Memorial to the Spanish American War. It was dedicated on November 11, 1923, where it sat at the front entrance to Municipal Auditorium, now known as Boutwell Auditorium. The statue was moved to the entrance of Linn Park, probably sometime in 1957, after a renovation to the front of the auditorium that year. The memorial was commissioned by the Greek-American Citizens of Birmingham in honor of the American Legion Birmingham Post No. 1. Its plaque is inscribed "In memory of the comrades who gave their lives in the service of our country during the World War. Presented to Birmingham Post No. 1 of the American Legion by the Greek-American Citizens. Birmingham, Alabama. Armistice Day 1923."  The plaque was stolen from the statue's base at some time in late 2010.
