---- — STRATHAM — The Stratham Historical Society and Stratham’s Wiggin Memorial Library will jointly sponsor a program by the N.H. Humanities Council, “Vanished Veterans: New Hampshire’s Civil War Monuments and Memorials” on Mon., November 11, at 7:00 p.m. The presenter will be George Morrison, (UNH, BA in history).

“New Hampshire Towns did not erect monuments prior to wars, but the emotional and family toll, unprecedented in American history, drove the decision to honor our local soldiers and sailors of the War of Rebellion.

The program will be held at the Community Room of the Stratham Fire Department, which is located at 4 Winnicutt Road. A business meeting will be held at 6:30 p.m. prior to the presentation. The program, scheduled to begin at 7:00 p.m., is free and open to the public.
