Description

This World War I monument in Doylestown, Ohio is described as Doylestown’s most distinctive feature. This feature might be considered Doylestown’s most distinctive because of their dedication to their veterans the massive amounts of veterans and soldiers that would serve in World War I. Wayne County as a territory would volunteer massive amounts of soldiers for World War I, making the depiction and statue of a doughboy in the town square of Doylestown very fitting. In addition, this monument is in part a depiction of the changes that would occur following World War I. The role of both men and women would begin to gradually change. Women would become more involved with the workforce, in factories and other jobs traditionally held by men before World War I. The monument would be dedicated on Armistice Day in 1920.
