Display by Tottenville Historical Society
The Tottenville Historical Society put together a display titled “We Honor Our Veterans” that is on the display shelf in the branch on the first floor. There is a picture of Civil War Veterans marching in a parade, along with some other pictures. Also included is a program from the dedication of a World War II monument that was on Main Street. I believe that Linda Hauck, the president of the society, said that the monument disappeared when it was sent in for repairs in the 1950s. (It was made out of wood, I think.)
They are also trying to collect data on any men and women who served in the U.S. Armed Forces from the Tottenville, Richmond Valley, and Charleston communities. If library staff know anyone who fits that bill, I can help get them in touch with Linda.
