Pennsylvania XXVIII

Milford is the county seat of Pike County, named for Zebulon Pike. Pike is credited with "discovering" Pike's Peak and he was killed in the War of 1812 while serving as a General.

The memorial was first dedicated in 1931 as a memorial to those who served in WWI.

Called the Soldiers and Sailors Memorial it was refurbished in 1991 and is said to honor all.

Located along Broad Street in a pretty park setting it does boast these small markers to honor other wars.

This is the only mention of Vietnam at the site, but it is here.

Next time, on the 22nd, we will return to Rhode Island, so join me there, as always, at 9:00am.
