Rainbow Division Memorial

This memorial to the 167th Alabama Infantry Division stands in front of Montgomery's Union Station. It honors the regiment's service as part of the 42nd Infantry, known as the Rainbow Division, in Europe during World War I. The statue was created by British sculptor James Butler and is identical to Butler's sculpture at the U.S. war memorial at the site of the battle of Croix Rouge Farm in Fère-en-Tardenois, France. The French statue was unveiled in 2011, and the Alabama statue was unveiled in 2017.
