The Girls Military Squad began planning the monument with the first deaths of Ward County men (11 had died by May 23, 1918) and erected it on May 30, 1918 for "Minot's Heroes Who Have Sacrificed Their Lives In The Worlds' Great Struggle for Universal Democracy That Government of, by, and for the People Might Not Perish From the Earth". This monument appears to be the first monument for local dead from World War I in the nation as most communities waited until the war was over before erecting memorials.

The Pagoda -- Memory Grove Parkzoom

Salt Lake City

The first memorial constructed in Salt Lake City's Memory Grove Park, The Pagoda honors Utahns who gave their lives for their country during World War I. Built in a classic style in the 1920s, the Pagoda has eight columns supporting a circular crest or entablature (all but the roof). The marble used in its construction was from the same source used in the construction of the Lincoln Monument in Washington, D.C. In 1932 a central octagonal column and urn were added bearing the names of fallen Utahns. Originally created as a city park in 1902, Memory Grove Park was dedicated in 1924 as a memorial for America's soldiers and contains several other monuments in addition to The Pagoda. On August 11, 1999 a tornado passed through Memory Grove Park resulting in the destruction of over 400 old trees. No monuments were damaged.
