The Sentinel was built in remembrance of four Legionnaires killed in the Armistice Day Riot of 1919.
Bearing the resemblance to a soldier in the World War I era, the monument looks out from Washington Park over Pearl Street in Centralia in a prominent location. The statue itself is the only part of the park nominated for inclusion in the National Register.
Several inscriptions on the monument, which serves as an unofficial centerpiece to George Washington Park, pay tribute to the men who had served in World War II and were members of the local American Legion at the time of the 1919 riot.
