  • Following the glorious battles waged by the Botoşani regiments during the First World War, it was necessary to build a monument commemorating their bravery and sacrifice.
  • The call to the public to raise funds for this monument urged the botosans not to forget the sacrifices of their parents, brothers and friends on the battlefield or in hospitals, some buried with care, others with only a handful of rush throwing.
  • The work was made by the sculptor Horia Miclescu, originally from Botoşani, and was unveiled in the summer of 1929. Major Grigore Ignat was slain by the enemy bullets of the central forces in August 1917, together with the regiments he had under his control, in the Battle of Razor.
  • The four shields attached to the corners of the socket represent the four historical provinces that joined with Romania after the First World War: Transylvania, Bucovina, Bessarabia and Banat. There are two important symbols on this statue on the statuary group statue: the scythe - also present on the coat of arms of Botoşani County, and the aurochs head of Moldavia.
