"The Prince George's County World War I Monument, erected in 1919, is significant for its commemoration the citizens of the county who served and died in the war. A collaboration of Baltimore sculptor Joseph Maxwell Miller and architect William Gordon Beecher, the monument is a representative example of the stele memorial type and of the common soldier Sentinel or Parade Rest figure, first made popular during the Civil War. The bronze was cast by the J. Arthur Limerick Foundry in Baltimore." (Submitted on November 3, 2013, by Allen C. Browne of Silver Spring, Maryland.)
