Vanished Veterans – NH’s Civil War Monuments and Memorials
Saturday, November 9, 2019
New Hampshire towns did not erect monuments to prior wars, but the emotional and family toll, unprecedented in American history, drove the decision to honor our local soldiers and sailors of the War of Rebellion. From Seabrook to Colebrook, Berlin to Hinsdale, along Main Streets and 19th-century dirt roads, in city parks and on town greens, in libraries and town halls, and in cemeteries prominent and obscure, George Morrison will present how he located, inventoried, and photographed the fascinating variety of New Hampshire’s Civil War memorials.
This program is free and open to the public through a grant from the NH Humanities’ Humanities to Go! Speaker’s Bureau.
