100 Cities - 100 Memorials

Memorial Inventory Project:  There is one other existing partial database to consult - The WWI Memorial Inventory Project [CLICK HERE]. It contains some memorials our map doesn't. The listings on this database are fair game for the Memorial Hunters Club. So if you want to search for treasure from your desk - find missing listings here and submit them. Remember though, you will need to come up with pictures and the history of the memorial. You might be able to hunt that down through www.Proquest.com and Google.

Root Common Park
53213 Wauwatosa
WI
USA

On November 11, 2018, the 100-year anniversary of the end of World War I, this peaceful Root Common Park was rededicated to the men and women from Wauwatosa serving in the war. The trees are a tribute to the four soldiers who paid the ultimate sacrifice in defense of liberty: Bernard A. Diedrich, Alexander E. Shiells, Harry S. Robbins and William Nehring.

At this site, on Memorial Day, 1928, the City of Wauwatosa dedicated three elm trees and bronze plaques to three Wauwatosa men who died serving our country during World War I. Over time, the trees died and the plaques were lost. Reconstruction of Root Common Park in 2018 revealed parts of the original memorial and a fourth fallen World War I soldier was identified.

They served in the U.S. Army’s 32nd Division, along with 15,000 other members of the Wisconsin National Guard. The 32nd fought in four major campaigns; defeated 23 German divisions; captured over 2,000 prisoners; suffered over 14,000 casualties; never yielded ground to the enemy; and were given the name “Les Terribles” by the French for their audacity in battle.

Shortly after the war, the Division adopted the shoulder insignia of a battle line shot through with a red arrow, symbolizing its tenacity in piercing every German defensive line faced. The 32nd became known as the Red Arrow Division and continues to operate today as the 32nd Infantry Brigade Combat Team of the Wisconsin National Guard.

Wellesley Memorial Grove

100 Cities / 100 Memorials

100c 100m wwi centennial plaqueIn May 1919, a Memorial Grove was dedicated to the 335 citizens of Wellesley who served and the 6 who died during the Great War.  The grove was designed by landscape architect Arthur H. Alexander .  Although 325 trees were planted and dedicated in 1919, the markers with their names and a “boulder with a bronze tablet on it commemorating the boys who served their country” never received appropriation. In commemoration of the centennial of World War I, the Town of Wellesley has restored Memorial Grove as a place of honor to those who served and those who gave their lives in World War I.  This restoration included the planting of 6 memorial trees (Eastern Rebud, Cercis Canadensis) in honor of the six men who died; a granite bench overlooking a park pond inscribed with information about the 6 heroes; and an historic interpretive sign welcoming visitors to Memorial Grove and explaining the history of 1919 events honoring those Wellesley residents who served and died.

PA

A memorial erected in the interwar period (the memorial refers to the conflict as "The World War") in front of Brownstown Elementary school. It lists everyone male and female from the township who served in the war and mentions those who served overseas as well as the two people killed and the three wounded in the course of the conflict. The monument is currently at risk because teachers at the elementary school want the monument removed because they view its presence outside a school as inappropriate and promoting violence.
