Appleton World War I Memorial

 Photographed November 18, 2014
Appleton, Outagamie County, Wisconsin

It was known as the Great War . . . the war to end all wars.

We went "over there" to the songs and cheers of our countrymen, and marched right into the grim reality of twentieth century warfare. Poison [sic], machine guns, tanks, aircraft and submarines were devastating innovations. We fought in trenches, on the sea and in the air.

We helped make the world safe for democracy . . . but it was only the beginning.
The memorial is located at Highland Memorial Park on southbound North Richmond Street / Wisconsin Highway 47, south of its intersection with West Capitol Drive, at 3131 North Richmond Street, Appleton, Wisconsin 54911.

NOTE: The entrance to Highland Memorial Park is south of the location of the memorial. The memorial is to the right, and easy to locate once you enter the park.

There are several memorials at this location; see also:

 World War I Memorial (left) and World War II Memorial (right).
