History of Civil War memorials to be discussed in New Hampton

NEW HAMPTON — In commemoration of the 150th anniversary of the Civil War, the New Hampton Historical Society will present the program, Vanished Veterans: New Hampshire's Civil War Monuments and Memorials, Thursday at 7 p.m. at the Gordon-Nash Library, Main Street, New Hampton.

Beginning with obelisks of the 1860s and continuing to re-mastered works of the 21st century, Civil War historian George Morrison will present a diverse selection of New Hampshire's commemorations and memorials.

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, New Hampshire's towns, individuals and veterans organizations erected a fascinating assortment of memorials to The War of the Rebellion. It was not until 1920 that the town of New Hampton erected its monument, an inscribed stone placed in the town square.

This program is funded in part by the New Hampshire Humanities Council. For information you may contact the Gordon-Nash Library, 744-8061 or Gordon DuBois 279-0379.
