Oklahoma State Capitol, Oklahoma City: 16 reviews and 26 photos

  G.I. at the War Memorial, State Capitol Building
by mrclay2000
 
 

While we are commemorating fallen friends and family, the War Memorials outside the Oklahoma Historical Society deserve attention. Since statehood in 1907, young Oklahomans have been sent into battle in all the major wars. Arching around the center of the pavilion is a sculpted panorama typifying the type of combat encountered in those wars. An eternal flame burns in the corner of the war pavilion, while in the opposite corner a single GI looks on, bleak and weary, at the legislature that sent him into harm's way.
