Pro Patria is a study for a life-size stone memorial in Arlington Memorial Cemetery in Washington D.C., which honors Colonel Emerson Liscum of the 9th Infantry Regiment who was killed in China during the Boxer Rebellion in 1900. His heroic charge against the enemy while carrying the regimental colors and exhorting his soldiers to "Keep Up The Fire Men" is commemorated to this day in the regimental trophy, the Liscum Bowl.
