The World War I Memorial Inventory Project honors the centennial of the Great War by assembling an online inventory of World War I memorials and monuments in the United States and U.S. territories. The project is working in partnership with the United States World War I Centennial Commission. The Registry and "Monuments Inspector" Mobile Application will invite and enable public participation in locating, documenting, and providing a preliminary condition assessment of all of the World War I memorials and monuments in the United States. Numbering in the thousands, and ranging from simple to grandiose, these memorials blanket the American landscape but are largely overlooked and often in poor condition. The app, website, and database will be instrumental in contributing to the memorials' physical and cultural rehabilitation.
