Learn all about World War I Monument in Downtown Westfield

On Saturday, February 29 at 2:00 p.m., historian Erik Burro will discuss Westfield’s own World War I monument, Clio, the Muse of History. Located in downtown Westfield on the circle on North Avenue, Clio is among more than 300 WWI memorials in existence.

For the past two years, Burro has independently researched and photographed the major monuments of the Great War in New Jersey and neighboring states in support of the American Centennial. Along with the monument in Westfield, he will discuss some of these other monuments using vivid photos and telling the century-old stories he has learned.

Burro is a lecturer and history presenter in Burlington, NJ, a preoccupation that has gradually taken over his career since he worked on several major exhibitions linked with America’s Bicentennial. In the years since then, Burro has continued to research, write and lecture on a variety of historic topics, as well as providing first-person historical portrayals at events throughout the Mid-Atlantic region and in Europe. He has also appeared on radio and TV stations, including NPR and BBC.
