Artist's Description

I was commissioned by Wentworth Military Academy and Junior College in Lexington, Missouri in 1999 this 400 pound bronze relief sculpture installed at the eave of the new General Tillotson Barracks designed in by H&M architects. The piece was installed in 2000.

The rifles used for a model is a 1795 Springfield Musket ball & powder rifle which represents the origin of this iconic insignia and emblem symbol of the U.S. Infantry and combined with other variations such as tanks and artillery were used for several other identity insignia such as the 1st Armored Division(Hell on Wheels). The cross rifle insignia most recognized is the brass pin secured to the lapel of the dress uniform of an infantry soldier.

This sculpture together welded into a 4′×8′ rectangle covering a space of 32 square feet. The casting was done in three pieces and a hot patina was used to finish the surface of the nickel and brass bronze.
The sculpture represents the honor the insignia reflects regarding the history of the U.S. infantry in combat and in peace as well.
