Title: When Chester Comes Marching Home Comments: This statue of a World War I doughboy is in downtown Jacksonville. One side of the base lists the "Colored" soldiers from Cherokee country who died in that war, one being Mr. Chester Brisby. This photo is ia tribute to Chester, a man who went off to a foreign land and fought and died to preserve a status quo that labeled him a second-class citizen. That takes guts. Location: Jacksonville
