The End of the Beginning: Eight of Sabin Howard’s Doughboys Get Ready to Go Back to Europe

Over there, over there,
Send the word, send the word over there
That the Yanks are coming, the Yanks are coming The drums rum — tumming everywhere.
-“Over There” by George M. Cohan, 1917

Sculptor Sabin Howard is preparing to ship eight doughboys, a little girl, and two iterations of a mother figure back to the foundry in England for molding and casting into bronze.
