Lincoln Spirit of the American Doughboyloupe

1927

Ground for the monument was broken on November 15th, 1926 on what was called then "Hay Scales Lot". Over 200 school children and many citizens of the town participated, accorded to Dr. Fellows' "History of Lincoln". Evidently it didn't take long to construct the monument, because that next spring, May 29th to be exact, the town held a Memorial Day service and dedication at the monument that afternoon. Maine's Governor Ralph Brewster was on hand to give the dedication speech. The Hon. William T. Gardiner presented the monument to the town, and it was unveiled by Lincoln area Civil War veterans. The 5th Infantry Band played music, there were prayers and speeches, and a benediction was given by a Rev. Mullin. How many people attended the ceremony is not recorded, but we can assume many if not most area citizens attended, as was the custom back then for these types of things.

And since another world-wide conflict was not anticipated, it was simply called the World War Memorial. Today, it is more commonly called the "doughboy" statue after the nickname given to American soldiers in World War 1. It now faces out West Broadway instead of toward Main Street.
