"The centennial of World War One offers an opportunity for people in the United States
to learn about and commemorate the sacrifices of their predecessors."

from The World War One Centennial Commission Act, January 14, 2013

DCWorldWarMonumen 1World War One was a watershed in American history. The United States' decision to join the battle in 1917 "to make the world safe for democracy" proved pivotal in securing allied victory — a victory that would usher in the American Century.

In the war's aftermath, individuals, towns, cities, counties, and states all felt compelled to mark the war, as did colleges, businesses, clubs, associations, veterans groups, and houses of worship. Thousands of memorials—from simple honor rolls, to Doughboy sculptures, to grandiose architectural ensembles—were erected throughout the US in the 1920s and 1930s, blanketing the American landscape.

Each of these memorials, regardless of size or expense, has a story. But sadly, as we enter the war's centennial period, these memorials and their very purpose—to honor in perpetuity the more than four million Americans who served in the war and the more than 116,000 who were killed—have largely been forgotten. And while many memorials are carefully tended, others have fallen into disrepair through neglect, vandalism, or theft. Some have been destroyed. Watch this CBS news video on the plight of these monuments.

The extant memorials are our most salient material links in the US to the war. They afford a vital window onto the conflict, its participants, and those determined to remember them. Rediscovering the memorials and the stories they tell will contribute to their physical and cultural rehabilitation—a fitting commemoration of the war and the sacrifices it entailed.

PARK
Sponsored by
American Legion and
Spanish War Veterans
DEDICATED
to the
DEAD SOLDIERS

Dedicated along with the park on May 19, 1929. The left hand, bayonet and rifle were lost many years ago and the right arm was torn off in 1979. It was restored later that year in a little more forward position than it is on other Doughboys. After being lost again, the rifle was replaced by the pistol visible in the photograph to discourage people from swinging from it. The fence was also placed to discourage vandalism. The park was founded in a joint effort of the American Legion and Spanish-American War Veterans, but they could not agree on whether the statue should be of a soldier of the World War or the Spanish-American War. As a result, school children raised a small part of the cost, and a local physician paid $2,000 for the remainder of the monument’s costs from his own funds. An unsuccessful attempt was made in 1999 to have the Doughboy included in the National Register of Historic Places.

The memorial acquisition had its beginnings as early as March 1920 when a successful campaign was conducted to raise funds to acquire the plaque by public subscription. The original plan was to place it on a large boulder at the Franklin County Courthouse, but a state art commission rejected that plan. After considerable delay, the base shown in the above photograph was built and the Doughboy was dedicated at the current location on a rainy November 12, 1923 – Armistice (November 11) was on Sunday that year. The parade paused for a minute of silence at 11 a. m. to recognize the effective time of the armistice five years earlier. Numerous organizations, bands and speakers participated in the ceremony.

Originally dedicated July 4, 1930 at the entrance to Lewis Tilles Park, but placed in storage in 1979 after substantial vandalism, including destruction of the rifle. After refurbishment by Ralph Irwin of Van Buren, Arkansas, it was rededicated at its current location on Memorial Day, 1998.

The Fort Smith Doughboy is one of only two specifically designated Viquesney Doughboys on the National Register of Historical Places.  The other is at Helena, Arkansas. However, at least three more Viquesney Doughboys (Spencer, Indiana, Meridian, Mississippi, and Columbia Falls, Montana) are on the grounds of locations included on the Register (close, but no cigar, as they say).

There is a very substantial roll of coiled razor-wire placed around the feet to discourage attempts to climb the monument.
The following history of Post 31's involvement with the acquisition, placement, and dedication of the Ft. Smith Doughboy was kindly provided by Flickr.com member sunnybrook100 (she has also logged an entry for this sculpture at the Historical Marker Database):

Ellig-Stoufer American Legion Post 31 (named in part after Victor Ellig, the first soldier from Fort Smith, Arkansas to be killed in WWI) was always heavily involved with creating and promoting parks and playgrounds in Fort Smith. In 1928, the Commander Henry Armstrong was named permanent chairman of the city's parks and playgrounds commission. A committee was formed then, "investigating the immediate needs of Lewis Tilles children's park."
It was at about this time that the post began a drive to install a World War I memorial at Tilles Park. That effort came near fruition in April of 1930, when the Arkansas Legionnaire announced that an "announcement has been made that with the city park board paying $500 of the $1,000 necessary, a lifesize bronze statue of a Doughboy will be erected at the entrance to the Lewis Tilles Children's park, Grand Avenue, as a memorial to the men who served in the World War." The statue had already been ordered, and dedication was planned that summer.

Appropriately, the dedication was scheduled for July 4, 1930. More than 2,000 people gathered at Tilles Park that evening for a ceremony that "including the unveiling and dedication of 'The Spirit of the American Doughboy', the first night tennis match ever held in the city, and a band concert." Mr. and Mrs. O.C. Ellig, Victor Ellig's parents, and several Gold Star mothers were in attendance. Dr. W.R. Brooksher, who led the committee that since 1928 had worked to acquire a World War I memorial, presented the statue to Post 31 Commander John Coley, who in turn presented it to Henry Armstrong of the parks and playgrounds commission. Armstrong then formally presented the monument to Mayor Fagan Bourland. The statue was unveiled by "two little misses," Jo Ann Carroll and Nancy Mae Connor, and the ceremony ended with the singing of "America". The sculpture was described by the Helena World as "the only true representation of the real Doughboy and his indomitable spirit."

Dedicated May 30, 1928.  A goldfish pond that was once at the base is now filled in and planted with flowers. A machine gun was originally mounted on the raised part of the base between the two figures. Its disappearance has been the subject of news articles containing speculations about when it vanished. While it was missing in a 1997 picture that appeared in the Daily Miner, it was reported as being present at the time of a 1993 survey of outdoor sculptures.

The color picture at the left above is included to show more details of the sailor, who appears to be standing on a dock by a rope enwrapped stanchion (between his feet) as he waves his small round cap at some offshore object. Other metal "Spirit of the American Navy" sculptures accompany Doughboys at Clearwater
, Florida; Naperville, IllinoisFort Wayne, Indiana; Granite and Hobart, Oklahoma; and a stone version at Crowell, Texas. A similar Viquesney tribute to the Navy, titled "Sailor", occurs at Palatka, Florida. 

Kingman, Arizona is the only known location where two Viquesney statues occur on the same pedestal (Fort Worth, Texas has a Viquesney Doughboy and a WWII G.I. on the same base, but the latter is by a different sculptor, Giordano Grassi, and was placed in 1980).

100c 100m wwi centennial plaque Memorial Park was designed by the famed Olmsted Brothers and dedicated on Dec. 25, 1924. It is the only park in the state dedicated to the 1,220 Floridians who lost their lives in service during World War I.  In his composition of “Life” for Memorial Park, Charles Adrian Pillars made powerful use of the grand, theatrical style of Beaux Arts sculpture. Even though this style was regarded as somewhat old-fashioned by the 1920s, Pillars nonetheless found it fitting to tell a moving story of the true spirit of those who served. He wrote that he “desired this memorial to present the idea of life, its struggle and its victory."  To further honor the fallen, the names of the more than 1,220 Floridians who died in the First World War were inscribed on parchment and placed in a lead box within a bronze box inside of Life.

The project to erect a Viquesney Spirit of the American Doughboy monument in Taylor Park in St. Albans began in late 1922 or early 1923. Various committees worked to raise funds under the overall direction of former Vermont Governor E. C. Smith. The executive committee was comprised of Fuller C. Smith, chairman; N. N. Atwood, treasurer; Harry Walker, Secretary; Steven S. Cushing; W. H. Finn; J. J. Thompson; E. R; Thibault; G. R. White; and George Grossman. American Legion Green Mountain Post No. 1, under Post Commander Donald L. McCrary, provided enthusiastic support. Most religious, fraternal, civic and social organizations were also involved.

 

The estimated cost was $5,000. A drive to raise the funds began in July 1923 and a committee of 100 volunteers promised to call upon every one of the 2,200 households to request donations, hoping that the $5,000 could be raised in a single day, August 14. The St. Albans Messenger had almost daily articles for two weeks in advance and letters were addressed to every household to alert the residents. The committee promised to place the names of the solicitors and every donor on a list to be deposited in the base of the monument. (Presumably, this was done.) The drive was a success and most of the required funds were raised on the appointed day.

 

The Doughboy monument, on a ten-foot pedestal of Barre granite, was dedicated at 3:00 p. m. on November 11, 1923, in a ceremony preceded by a parade organized by WWI veteran, Captain C. E. Pell, Grand Marshall. The parade was lead by the St. Albans Brigade band, which was followed by state and local officials, community organization members, survivors of past wars, and contributing sponsors.

 

Major S. S. Watson, senior St. Albans WWI military officer, was in charge of the dedication ceremony. An invocation by the Legion Post Chaplain, Stanley C. Cummings, was followed by an unveiling by J. G. Moore, a Civil War veteran and Commander of the A. R. Hurlbut Post, Grand Army of the Republic. The bronze plaque on the side of the monument was also uncovered.


Following the unveiling, the St. Albans Glee Club sang "The Soldiers Farewell." Charles E. Barber, Commander of the American Legion Department of Vermont then spoke. He was followed by Mayor F. A. Collins, who accepted the monument on behalf of the city. Congressman John Q Tilson of Massachusetts, a member of the U. S. House of Representatives Military Affairs Committee and a veteran of the Spanish-American War on the Mexican Border Campaign, delivered the main address of the day. The ceremony closed with a benediction by Chaplain Cummings followed by a rendition of the "Star Spangled Banner" by the St. Albans Brigade Band.

Each year, at the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month, the Green Mountain American Legion Post No. 1 holds a ceremony at the Taylor Park site of the Doughboy.
