North Carolina XIII

Nine young men from a small North Carolina town are honored upon this memorial. Nine may not sound like a lot, but the town of Dallas, in Gaston County, only had around three thousand citizens at the time. So, nine is actually a lot, it is safe to say, I think, that the odds are very good that these young men were probably well known to everyone in the town.

This memorial is located on North Gaston Street at the Gaston County Court House.

It was dedicated on July 4th 1974, before the war was even over, making it a fairly early remembrance.

Next time, on the 18th, we will make a return trip to Oregon, so, join me there, as always, at 9:00am.
