E.T. Wickham was very patriotic. Many of his statues had patriotic themes. The World War II Memorial, Alvin York and Patrick Henry statues, as well as his flagpoles come to mind.
E.T. had two flagpoles on his property on Buck Smith Road. One was located next to the World War II Memorial and the other was located next to his log cabin. The flagpole by the cabin stood next to the Chief Tecumseh statue . The bottom of this flagpole was encased in concrete and enscribed with the quote you see above from the American Flag poem written by Father Constantine Pise.
