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
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.
