Amanuensis Monday- A weeklong project - The Civil War Veterans of Londonderry

On the Londonderry Common there are five major war memorials. Instead of just posting a photograph, I decided it was worthwhile to list each name on the war memorials in the text of this post so that the veterans families could access their loved ones names through webcrawlers and search engines. It is too much to transcribe all the names on all the memorials for today's post, so I decided I would post one memorial each day this week in honor of Veteran's Day. I started with the Civil War memorial.

These are the names inscribed on that monument. There were several names that appeared illegible high up on the top of the obelisk, but I plan to go back and look again at the monument with a pair of binoculars, and I will update this post ASAP.

  1. What a wonderful project, I'm impressed. And, I bet you will receive queries from some of the descendants. Very nice and original as well.
