            Vanished Veterans

On Thursday, April 17th at 7 PM, George Morrison will present Vanished Veterans – New Hampshire’s Civil War Monuments 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, 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 located, inventoried and photographed the fascinating variety of NH’s Civil War memorials.  This free lecture will be held in Laconia Public Library’s Rotary Hall and is sponsored by the NH Humanities Council and the Laconia Public Library.
