Funkstown Doughboy Monument
Funkstown, Washington County, Maryland
The sheet copper World War I Doughboy monument stands in Funkstown, Washington County. It was dedicated in 1921 to those of the district who served and died in the Great War. Like the Talbot monument, it was manufactured by the Mullins Body Company of Salem, Ohio. The popular Doughboy statues were descended from the Civil War common soldier statues. There are seven Doughboys in Maryland made of copper, bronze, granite or marble. Two of identical design may be found in Crisfield and Emmittsburg.
Washington County is home to a second Doughboy statue, cast in bronze, in Williamsport. Both Washington County monuments were first treated by the Monuments Commission in 1994, and have received routine maintenance.
