Long Description:
This is one of five known stone designs similar to Viquesney's Spirit of the American Doughboy but which lack the full battle gear. While there is some evidence to suggest that Viquesney might have been involved with the production of these stone statues, there is also evidence to suggest that McNeel Marble Company of Marietta, Georgia, the suspected manufacturer, was simply making knock-offs of Viquesney's design and selling them to customers through a bait-and-switch scam.
