He’s a familiar figure to most Wheeling residents.

After all, he has stood guard vigilantly at Wheeling Park for more than eighty years — grenade in one hand, [part of a] rifle in the other. He even inspired a 2011 motion picture featuring a lot of local sets and actors.

He’s made of pressed copper forged at McCurdy’s Monument Works on Chapline Street, and his faded green patina and missing bits and pieces evince the passage of time.
