World War One was a watershed in American history. The United States' decision to join the battle in "to make the world safe for democracy" proved pivotal in securing allied victory — a victory that would usher in the American Century. In the war's aftermath, individuals, towns, cities, counties, and states all felt compelled to mark the war, as did colleges, businesses, clubs, associations, veterans groups, and houses of worship. Thousands of memorials—from simple honor rolls, to Doughboy sculptures, to grandiose architectural ensembles—were erected throughout the US in the s and s, blanketing the American landscape. Each of these memorials, regardless of size or expense, has a story.
