107th United States Infantry

107 infantry


One of the several war memorials in Central Park, this monument is dedicated to those soldiers who served and died in World War I. The sculptor, Karl Illava, was a sergeant with the 107th Infantry. He captures from memory the myriad emotions and physical responses to war. The seven larger than life-size figures display both the aggressive stance of combat as well as the concerned care of wounded comrades.
