They say "Dead Men, as you know, Tell No Tales," but that isn't true. These Civil War soldiers left reports, letters, journals, photographs, etc., and have been remembered, not only on every Memorial Day but on the 25th, 50th, 75th, 100th and 150th anniversaries of their incredible journeys. (Quote attributed to the Persian poet Sa'di, c1250)
We are a grassroots project documenting the story of the State's contributions to the war, and what happened to the participants during and after the war.
For the purposes of this project, anyone who was born or died in Vermont, regardless of where they served, and anyone who served in a Vermont unit, regardless of where they were born, we consider a Vermonter.
To that end, to date we have documented more than 37,000 Vermonters (men and women) who participated, on both sides of the war.
