PATERSON, N.J. -- The Paterson Historic Preservation Society is looking for funding to help restore the World War I monument in Westside Park.
The monument is a sculpture designed by Paterson's Gaetano Federici.
The Preservation Society is looking to raise $50,000 in an effort to restore the statue so future generations can better understand "The War to End All Wars."
The United States mobilized more than 4 million troops for the first World War and had 116,516 soldiers killed between 1917 and 1918.
