WEBINAR, Friday, Sept 11, 2020 1pm EDT: "The Doughboys Leave New Jersey for UK - in 2020!"
An Update of the Soldier’s Journey WWI Memorial Sculpture
In 1917 and 1918, we sent many Doughboys “Over There”, from our shores in NJ headed for the UK. They were newly minted and raw recruits.
Historian, Dr. Mitchell Yockelson will give us some insight into what was happening in New Jersey 100 years ago.
NOW HISTORY REPEATS ITSELF - as the 38-figure bronze sculpture “A Soldier’s Journey” has been assembled in Englewood, New Jersey and the first 11 sculpted figures are getting ready to ship out for the foundry in the UK.
This webinar is a unique opportunity to see all 38 figures assembled at scale in one place, before the first 11 ship out for the UK presented by master sculptor Sabin Howard.
We will open with an update on the Memorial construction
And apropos to our theme we are closing with the short documentary from the "How WWI Changed America series" Going To War.
