Monuments Project

Introduction

This webpage electronically records the work originally begun in 2005 to document all the military monuments and markers in the Lehigh Valley (Lehigh and Northampton counties) for the purposes of promoting awareness of our local military veterans’ contributions in service to our nation and to encourage public officials and citizens’ groups to adopt and care for sometimes forgotten memorials. 

The sacrifices made by our men and women in uniform who have gone before us must never be forgotten. Their willingness to defend this nation has secured us freedoms, rights, and blessings. Therefore, when we erect war monuments to our military history, they should do more than serve as remembrances of individuals and their feats. They ought to give us pause to reflect on why these men and women served at the particular times in our history. Only then can we hope to give their sacrifices meaning and everlasting value.
