6. “Spirit of the American Doughboy” Sculpture
Life-size statue of a World War I infan­try­man advancing through stumps and barbed wire, holding a grenade in his upraised hand. Sculpted by E.M. Viquesney in 1920, duplicated, and sold to communities throughout the United States in the 1920s and 1930s. 140 of these statues are known to be standing.
(about 500 feet away, measured in a direct line); Dils Cemetery (about 600 feet away); Educator, Soldier, Congressman, President (about 700 feet away); Garfield at Piketon (about 700 feet away); James A. Garfield (about 700 feet away). Touch for a list and map of all markers in Pikeville.
 
Also see . . .  Earl D. Goldsmith’s Spirit of the American Doughboy Database entry for this statue. Excerpt:
A search of files of old newspapers through 1929 by Pikeville Librarian, Christy Fleming, didn’t find an article that mentioned its dedication so its likely it was originally dedicated in the range of 1930-1933. The plaza where it is located did not exist then, at least in its current form, so it has been relocated at some date, even though it was probably always somewhere in Courthouse Square.
