Artist's Description

This sculpture by artist Stephen Spears commemorates the battle of Cantigny in WWI and the 28th Infantry Regiment of the 1st Division, referred to as the “Black Lions.”

On May 28, 2008, the 90th anniversary of the Battle of Cantigny, the McCormick Foundation and the Association of the 28th Infantry Regiment dedicated the statue “The Lion of Cantigny,” depicting a doughboy of the regiment advancing through the village. The 28th Infantry was the assault regiment in the First Divison’s attack, the first major US battle of World War I. The regimental coat of arms is based on the lions in the heraldic arms of Picardy, where Cantigny is; the regiment’s nickname is Black Lions.
