The granite memorial is centered on a 14 foot tall shaft topped by a sculpted urn. On the front of the shaft is a small shelf on which sits a large bronze sculpture of a winged angel holding an olive branch. Underneath the angel is inscribed the commemoration to the men of Delaware who served in World War I and on the side is a bronze plaque with the names of all those from the state who died during the conflict. The memorial was sculpted by Augustus Lukeman and dedicated in 1923; as indicated on the inscription for the memorial it was presented to the state by William H. Todd in honor of his parents.
