Description

The centerpiece of Tatamy's World War I memorial is an E.M. Viquesney Spirit of the American Doughboy that was dedicated on Armistice Day, 1923.

A bronze honor roll plaque on the front of the base lists 23 names, including two gold stars. The two gold stars are also listed on a separate plaque on the side of the base. A third plaque notes the sponsor of the memorial (citizens of Tatamy and community) and the dedication year (1923).

Plaques commemorating later wars have been added to the wall behind the memorial.

The Tatamy doughboy was originally located at the intersection of Bushkill and Main Streets. In 1941 it was moved to the east side of what was then a school and is now the Municipal Building. In 1993 it was moved to the new memorial area constructed in front of the Municipal Building.
