For a personal touch, custom bronze plaques can be affixed to the base, allowing for the inclusion of heartfelt messages or commemoratory details at an additional cost. May this solemn monument serve as a timeless reminder of the courage and resilience of those who made the ultimate sacrifice in service to their country.
World War I Era Fallen Soldier plaque shown is $700.00.
The Fallen Soldier Battle Cross, Battlefield Cross or Battle Cross is a symbolic replacement of a cross, or marker appropriate to an individual service-member’s religion, on the battlefield or at the base camp for a soldier who has been killed. The practice started during or prior to the American Civil War, as a means of identifying the bodies on the battleground before removal. Today, it is a means of showing respect for the dead amongst the still living members of the troop.
World War I represented a momentous entry onto the world stage and a pivotal juncture in global history. Initially hesitant to become entangled in the conflict brewing in Europe, the United States was ultimately drawn into the war by a combination of factors, including unrestricted submarine warfare by Germany, the sinking of the Lusitania, and the interception of the Zimmermann Telegram. With President Woodrow Wilson’s rallying cry for democracy and self-determination, American troops joined the Allied forces in 1917, significantly bolstering their ranks and turning the tide of the war. The war’s conclusion in 1918 marked not only a triumph for the Allies but also the beginning of a new era in international relations, as the United States emerged as a key player in shaping the postwar world order through its involvement in the Treaty of Versailles and the League of Nations. The sacrifices made and the lessons learned during World War I laid the groundwork for America’s evolving role as a global superpower and its commitment to promoting peace and stability in the years to come.
