More detail of the World War I* Soldier sculpture:
*Correction: Originally had Civil War... which by his uniform he clearly isn't. Just proof that I shouldn't post these in the wee hours of the morning.


  1. The soldier was Felix Wierzbicki, born 1895, Company I, Infantry. Demobilization order Nov 15, 1918, Camp Devans, MA, Died 1919. no cause of death given. He was a soldier in World War I, not the Civil War.

    1. Just made the edit. Proof that I should not be posting these in the wee hours of the day.
