Long Description:
As we were walking around historic Evanston we came upon this beautiful sculpture. It is the famous “Doughboy Statues” created by E.M. Viquesney. The Spirit of the American Doughboy is standing proudly infront of the Evanston Court House along with the American Flag. The description of the sculpture is a American soldier in uniform strides forward with his proper left foot planted before him and his proper right foot raised behind him. His proper left hand is at his side holding horizontally a rifle with a fixed bayonet. His proper right hand is held in the air as a clenched fist. He wears a helmet, a bed roll on his back, and a pack on his front. On his belt, a canteen hangs by his proper right side and a knife hangs by his proper left side. The figure stands on a multitiered base with many inscribed plaques.

The inscription is cast by American Art bronze foundry/Chicago (Plaque on front of lower base:) CIVIL WAR/AND/SPANISH AMERICAN/1861 VETERANS 1898 (Plaque on front of upper base, raised:) World War 1914-1919/(list of Uinta County service men) (Plaque on side of upper base, raised:) 1941-1947/WORLD WAR II/(list of Unita County service men) (Plaque on rear of upper base, raised:) WORLD WAR II/(list of Uinta County service men) (Plaque on other side of upper base, raised:) WORLD WAR II/(list of Uinta County service men) (South side of pedestal:) Erected by/Uinta County Memorial Association/1920 unsigned Founder's mark appears.
