South Side
This Doughboy Monument,
Sculpted by E.M. Viquesney was erected
Following World War I, "The War to End All Wars."

The City of Bessemer and
the State of Alabama Historical Park and Historical Site
Maintenance and Repair Grant Program
Restored and preserved this statue
So that future generations may
Remember the struggles and bloodshed that
Preceding generations endured
To protect the peace and
Liberties we hold dear.

We especially wish to
Honor the veterans who protected our freedom
With their lives.

Rededicated November 11, 1999
