What: - -
Another 3-part series - -
This one is on
World War One - -
and its meaning for the Conway Community.


New Hampshire participated in World War One by providing over 20,000 men for military service, investing $75,465,890 in the first four Liberty Loans, supplying 150,000 members of the Red Cross and contributing $935,000 to that organization’s work.

When World War I ended, the New Hampshire legislature took action to recognize those who died. $500,000 was set aside for a joint venture with the State of Maine to build a Memorial Bridge across the Piscataqua River, between Portsmouth (NH) and Kittery (ME). This 1,200-feet long bridge was opened to the public in August of 1923.

In 1919 the New Hampshire legislature voted to have a bronze memorial tablet created and placed in the State House. It bears the 697 names of New Hampshire residents who died in the military, naval or auxiliary services of the United States or any of the Allied countries.

HISTORY:

I often say of George Washington
that he was one of the few
in the whole history of the world
who was not carried away by power.
Robert Frost

A truly American sentiment recognizes
the dignity of labor
and the fact that
honor lies in honest toil.
Grover Cleveland

History is not a burden on the memory
but an illumination of the soul.
Lord Acton

Human history becomes more and more
a r
ace between
education and catastrophe.
H. G. Wells
