Erected by the City of Chicago in 1927, the Victory Monument commemorates the Eighth Regiment of the Illinois National Guard, an African-American division founded in 1871. The regiment garnered national attention in World War I, as they played a critical role in finally driving the Germans out of France prior to the Armistace.
