Long Description:
Dedicated November 11, 1929 under the sponsorship of the New Philadelphia American Legion post in a celebration including a parade, drum and bugle corps, the high school band, fireworks and appropriate dedicatory remarks. Refreshments were served after the dedication and a large banquet was held at the First Presbyterian Church that evening.

The Doughboy’s bayonet was lost at some point, but has been replaced. The sculpture is in relatively good condition in comparison to other Doughboys around the country.

The inscription on a plaque on the front of the base reads:
IN MEMORY OF
THE MEN AND WOMEN
OF TUSCARAWAS COUNTY
WHO SERVED THEIR COUNTRY
IN THE WORLD WAR
