He honours the memory of the American volunteer soldiers, engaged in the French army against the Germans, from 1914 to 1918. The monument is stone-shaped allegory representing the winged victory in front of which two soldiers hold hands. On the left, it is a hairy and right, it is an American volunteer, head bare. In fact, engaged in the Foreign Legion, many died, including the poet Alan Seeger, whose quotes are engraved on the pedestal. They were read on the day of the "decoration day" on May 30, 1916, in front of the statues of Washington and La Fayette. It translates into: "they did not pursue vain rewards, they wanted nothing but to be remorseless, brothers of the blue soldiers, to honor the sorrow and to live their lives and die their death. Hi brothers, goodbye big dead, twice thank you. Double forever is your glory to be dead to France and to be dead also for the honor of our memory. "Overcoming the monument, a bronze statue of Alan Seeger, by Jean Boucher (1870-1939), represents him as a volunteer, a rifle in his shoulder, raising his arm as a sign of victory. The names of the American soldiers who died in the fighting were engraved on the back of the monument. This monument was rehabilitated in 1978 and it shows! This work is touching, by the expressiveness of the characters and the rather rare presence, of poetic quotations in a monument from the war. It was inaugurated on 4 July 1923
