Monument Monday - War Memorial, Manchester, Vermont

War Monument - Manchester, VT

"The Honor Roll Project is an effort to transcribe and photograph military honor rolls.  The transcribed names make the soldiers available for search engines, so that descendants and family members can find them on the internet.  It is a simple, but very rewarding project."

This afternoon I took a ride into town to photograph and transcribe one of the war monuments in town.  Manchester was a gathering spot for soldiers during the American Revolution, especially in the days before the Battle of Bennington. The monument represents this with the figure of a Revolutionary War soldier at the top.  The monument, however, is dedicated to the men of four wars.

Facing the road at the base of the monument is the dedication plaque, stating that the monument was placed in 1905.  Working clockwise around the base are plaques list men who served in the Revolutionary War, the War of 1812, the Mexican War and the Civil War.  I've transcribed each panel below.

  1. I have to say my shirt button almost popped off from the proud feeling I felt reading the Smith names on the Revolutionary War side of the monument. And John Smith's wife, Mary (Molly), was just as brave dealing with the Tories when he was away with the militia. Pretty darned inspiring.
