Directly in front of the historic Todd County Courthouse is a monument dedicated to the memory of the soldiers and sailors who died in the service of their country. In 1918 William E. Lee approached the county commissioners and offered to build the monument at his own personal expense. The specifications were drawn up by Clarence H. Johnston, architect; and the sculpture was done by John K. Daniels, St. Paul.

This bronze sculpture by E.M. Viquesney depicts a life-sized World War I infantryman advancing through the stumps and barbed wire on No Man's Land, holding a rifle in his left hand and a grenade in his upraised right hand.  A new plaque on the pedestal of the Doughboy reads:

Spirit of the American Doughboy
Artist: E.M. Viquesney (1876 - 1946)
Copyrighted in 1920  
Originally dedicated on November 11, 1927
at the opening ceremony
of the Memorial Causeway Bridge.
Donated by the American Legion Post 7
in memory of 38 local service men
who died in World War I.  Rededicated November 10, 2006
following the completion of the
new Memorial Causeway Bridge in 2005,
the statue was restored and reinstalled.
Considered Viquesney's greatest work of art,
132 original "Doughboys" are still in existence.  

A plaque with similar wording is mounted on the pedestal of the Sailor.  Although the plaque denotes 132 Doughboys, more have been found since.

This is a set of four life-sized bronze statues commemorating World War I soldiers and sailors (three doughboys and one sailor) at the Old Memorial Bridge over the St. Johns River. The four sculptures were dedicated November 11, 1927 at the two ends of Memorial Park Bridge over the St. Johns River near downtown Palatka, and later placed in the same relative positions when the New Memorial Bridge was completed in 1976.  Depicted in these four statues are: a doughboy carrying a 1903 Springfield rifle (E.M Viquesney or Gutzon Borglum sculptor), a doughboy equipped with a Colt .45 pistol and grenade (E.M. Viquesney), another doughboy carrying a grenade and sticks of dynamite (E.M Viquesney or Gutzon Borglum), and a sailor holding a shell (E.M. Viquesney).  See pictures gallery for additional three photos.

This is a larger than life bronze sculpture of a soldier dressed in World War I, carrying a rifle, his right arm raised in celebration. Known as 'The Doughboy', the sculpture was added to the Sarasota War Memorial on May 25th 1998.  It was reproduced by Sarasota sculptor Frank Colson from an original titled "Spirit of the American Doughboy" created in 1920 by E.M. Visquesney.

"Sarasota's War Memorial first dedication was held Sunday, November 11, 1928. It was part of the ceremony marking the 10th anniversary of the signing of the armistice that ended World War I." Text Source: (visit link)

A Florida historic marker stands nearby with the following text:

Side 1
The Sarasota War Memorial was commissioned by American Legion Bay Post 30 and designed by architect Clare C. Hosmer. On November 11, 1928, it was dedicated at the city's Five Points intersection in a ceremony observing the 10th anniversary of Armistice Day.
It remained at Five Points until 1954, when the city relocated it to what is now Chaplain J.D. Hamel Park. The monument recognizes all residents who have answered their country's call, and honors those who died in World War I and subsequent conflicts.

Side 2
A bronze World War I soldier known as the "Spirit of the American Doughboy" was unveiled on May 25, 1928, in a Memorial Day ceremony. It was reproduced by Sarasota sculptor Frank Colson from an original created in 1920 by Ernest Moore Visquesney.
The soldier's charge across "No Man's Land" on a Europrean battlefield completed an extensive monument restoration project commissioned by the Patriotic Observance Committee of the Sarasota County Veterans Commission. It was funded by public and private donations.

The left photo was taken at the former Herrin City Park location Northeast of the center of town. The Doughboy was moved in October of 2002 and rededicated the following November 11 at the new location shown on the right in a small downtown plaza area across from City Hall at the corner of North Park Avenue and West Adams Street. A major portion of the move was handled by the National Guard. The plaques honoring veterans were also moved and placed on the wall behind the Doughboy.
