Girls Military Squad World War Monumentloupe
700 11th Ave SE
USA 58701

This white marble monument, erected by the Girls' Military Squad of Minot , is believed to be the first permanent memorial in the nation to recognize local soldiers who died during The Great War.

The memorial was dedicated on 30 May 1918, in Riverside Park, now Roosevelt Park. It was moved to Rosehill Cemetery due to flooding.  The date of the move is uncertain; cemetery and park officials are researching to locate that date, known to be before 1962, and welcome any information the public might have.

The base of the monument is inscribed on all four sides. On the north side is engraved, “Erected by the Girls Military Squad, Minot, ND, May 30, 1918.” Other inscriptions read, “All For Our Country,” “In Memory of Minot’s Heroes Who Have Sacrificed Their Lives In The World’s Great Struggle for Universal Democracy,” and “That Government of, by, and for the People Might Not Perish From the Earth.”

The Pagoda -- Memory Grove Parkloupe
300 Canyon Road
Salt Lake City
USA 84103

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.

World War 1 Memorial Plaque 

100 Cities / 100 Memorials

100c 100m wwi centennial plaque The Sons of the American Legion Squadron 283 in Pacific Palisades, CA worked to restore The World War I Memorial Plaque originally placed at the Santa Monica Memorial Open Air Theater in 1921. Along with the WWII memorial plaque that was added in 1946, the WWI plaque was cleaned and its surface restored. Both plaques had their mountings replaced with corrosion-controlling bolts and their mounting wall surfaces stabilized. A rededication ceremony was held on July 3, 2017 when the restored plaques were gifted back to the Santa Monica Unified School District. The ceremony was attended by local veteran groups, high school students, and descendants of several of those memorialized.
