Memorial Day - FACES OF THE FALLEN

 

 

As we once again plan our Memorial Day program that will happen on Monday, May 27, 2019 we would like to collect as many photos of those from Shelby County who died during a time of war that are available.  We honor those who were killed in action as well as those who died of other causes such as accidents and disease who are native from Shelby County or are now buried here. 

 

We have accounted for 14 from the Mexican American War (April 25, 1846 – February 2, 1848; 21 from the Civil War (April 12, 1861 – April 9, 1865); one from the Philippine American War (February 4, 1899 – July 2, 1902); 35 from World War I (April 7, 1917 – November 11, 1918); 126 from World War II (December 7, 1941 – September 2, 1945); 8 from the Korean War (June 25, 1950 – July 27, 1953); 12 from the Vietnam War (November 1, 1955 – April 30, 1975); and 3 from the current War on Terrorism (September 11, 2001 – present day).
