Veterans Monument Preservation
Through a combination of words and imagery, veterans’ memorials found throughout Mount Auburn contribute to the telling of American history and the service of men and women in times of war. You can now access information about a group of nine veterans of the Civil War and World War I, and the details of their monuments at Mount Auburn, through our new mobile app.
The Friends of Mount Auburn is currently fundraising to conserve these memorials, all of which offer unique contributions to our understanding of Massachusetts and American military history. We have received a challenge grant of $7,500 from the Massachusetts Archives, and are seeking funds to match it one-to-one.
To support this project, please visit http://mountauburn.org/give/ and select “Veterans Preservation” on the list of donation options. Thank you for helping us preserve these monuments to military heroes for future generations of visitors!
