107th Infantry Memorial: E67
[Unveiled 1927]
Sculpted:
1926-1927
Sculptor:
Karl Illava 1896-1954 • USA
Gift of the 7th-107th Memorial Committee

Located along Fifth Avenue on the perimeter of Central Park, is the powerful statue of seven American soldiers who memorialize the grueling battles of World War I.
Three of the men have bayonets ready for battle, while the weight of a wounded solider collapses into the embracing arms of a fellow comrade.
As a former sergeant in the 107th, Karl Illava has brought the experience of his own emotions to portraying the valor of his comrades in battle.
