The Doughboy Statue in Overton Park, Memphis, Tennessee, in January 1939. This memorial to those from Shelby County who died serving in World War I was sculpted by Nancy Coonsman Hahn and presented to the city by the Daughters of the American Revolution on September 19, 1926. At some point, two German field guns captured during the war were installed next to the statue. This image was used in a story in the "Commercial Appeal" on October 30, 1942, which noted the guns would be among a number of similar monuments to be melted down for the war effort.
