This place of remembrance honors 28th Division veterans of World Wars I and II. The grounds of the Shrine and the park surrounding it once belonged to the estate of Colonel Theodore Davis Boal (1867-1938).

Convinced that the United States would eventually give up its neutral position and enter World War I, Boal established the eastern part of his estate as a cavalry training camp in 1916. He began to enlist volunteers to train as members of a horse-mounted machine gun troop, the 1st Pennsylvania Cavalry, State College. It eventually became Company A of the 107th Machine Gun Battalion of the 28th Infantry Division.

"They died in France for liberty."
