This is one of several monuments honoring veterans and soldiers in Woodlawn. Second Lieutenant Charles Bowen Busey (b. 1887-d. 1918) was killed in action while attempting to storm a machine gun nest near Grand Pre, France during World War I. He was the son of Col. And Mrs. S.T. Busey and married to Louise M. Carter with a three-year old son. The Busey family built this large monument in his memory. Before the war, Charles Busey was a cashier at Busey Bank.
