After being on display for less than a week, a misspelling of the word “American” on a plaque at the General Darby Legacy Monument has caught the eye of many visitors.
The plaque, which was installed on Monday (April 25), doesn’t include the “i” in “American”.
The bronze statue was placed in its current location at Cisterna Park on Wednesday (April 27). It was formally dedicated on Saturday (April 30).
A representative for the Darby Legacy Project told 5NEWS that the error had been brought to their attention and that the group is in the process of getting it fixed.
The monument pays tribute to William Darby, a World War II officer from Fort Smith who founded the U.S. Army Rangers.
