In the fall of 1919 the men, women and children of Kansas City came together in an unprecedented outpouring of generosity, patriotism and tribute. They raised more than $2 million to build a monument in remembrance of those who fought and lost their llives in the pursuit of liberty during World War I, the Great War. Lest the Ages Forget : Kansas City's Liberty Memorial, tells the story of that great monument. From the selection of architect H. Van Buren Magonigle's soaring, triumphant design, to the historic 1998 restoration drive, Lest the Age Forget recounts the fortunes of Kansas City's most visible and proudest landmark.
