Restored WWI-era statue back atop pedestal for Memorial Day
Nearly 90 years after the installation of Swanton’s iconic World War I statue, residents in this small village straddling Lucas and Fulton counties will rededicate their restored soldier. The Spirit of the American Doughboy, one of about 145 similar statues mass-produced by sculptor Ernest Moore Viquesney and placed in spots of honor in cities across the country, commemorates local men who lost their lives in that war.
