This shirt is inspired by E.M. Viquesney’s famous sculpture — “The Spirit of the American Doughboy” — designed to honor the veterans and casualties of World War I. We're proud to honor the Doughboys of The Great War — 2 of which were our great uncles — with the Spirit of the American Doughboy T-Shirt, the latest from CIVVIESUPPLY's vintage military-inspired collection.
The Spirit of the American Doughboy is a timeless symbol of bravery and sacrifice that has stood tall for over a century. Sculpted by E.M. Viquesney, the bronze statue represents the courage of American soldiers who fought in World War I. The iconic image of the young soldier, poised and ready for battle, has captured the imagination of generations of Americans.
The history of the statue dates back to the early 1920s, when Viquesney began creating his masterpiece. He was inspired by the bravery of the soldiers who fought in the Great War, and he wanted to create a memorial that would honor their sacrifice. The statue depicts a doughboy, a nickname given to American soldiers during the war, standing tall with a rifle in his hand and a grenade at his belt.
Viquesney's sculpture quickly became popular, and he created dozens of copies that were installed in towns and cities throughout the United States. The statue became a symbol of American patriotism and a reminder of the sacrifices made by the soldiers who fought in the war.
The Spirit of the American Doughboy is more than just a statue – it is a powerful symbol of the American spirit. It stands as a testament to the bravery and sacrifice of those who fought in World War I, and it continues to inspire new generations to uphold the values of courage, patriotism, and selflessness.
