  • Overview

    Atlantic City is home to the World War I Memorial. Built in 1922, it has been listed in the National Register of Historic Places since Aug. 28, 1981. It commemorates the major battles of World War I.

    In the center of the Greek temple like structure is a sculpture by Frederick McMonnies titled “Liberty in Distress.”

    The statue in the rotunda depicts a nude Lady Liberty with a broken sword screaming at the horrors of war. There is a nude male soldier across her leg and other victims and symbols of war at her feet.

    At the top of the columns on the outer ring of the temple are the names of World War I battles and medallions of the different military services.

    The memorial is located at O'Donnell Park, S. Albany at Ventnor.
