On the night of February 14, 1995 New Ulm’s “Doughboy” statue of a World War 1 infantryman in the City Cemetery was vandalized. A committee to repair it was quickly formed by the Legion
and other veterans groups, bankers, and civic leaders. The completely repaired statue was rededicated on October 9. See dedication brochure here.
