Norman Cornwall Memorial
The Norman Cornwall Memorial honors soldiers from the west side of Chicago who lost their lives in World War I. Private Norman J. Cornwall, a U.S. Marine, died in action in France in 1918. The Norman Cornwall Post of the American Legion donated the memorial and dedicated it in May 1930. Standing at more than twenty-feet-tall, the monument is composed of a Georgia-marble pylon with a bronze flame at its peak. It is located near the Garfield Park, Chicago.
