Across the country and around the world, U.S. war, military and veterans memorials stand to honor those who served in uniform and the battles they fought to protect our nation’s freedoms. The American Legion is now establishing a database to identify the locations, document histories and share photographs of our nation’s monuments and memorials to those who have served.

Key points for each submission include:

  • Location of the memorial, mapped if possible
  • Purpose of the memorial, such as who it honors and why, in just a sentence or two
  • Date of the memorial’s installation and who originally installed it
  • A brief assessment of its condition today
  • A photo or photos, easily taken with a smart phone

To upload text or photos, simply click on "Add a Memorial" and follow the instructions. Submissions will be be displayed after review. For support, concerns, questions, please contact us.

Memorial to Heroes of the World War, Pittsboro

The plaque was first placed at the Pittsboro High School built in the early 1900’s. According to the information given by the Chatham County Historical Association, when that building was torn down the plaque came into possession of the local Veterans of Foreign Wars. Eventually it was included in a county history display in the Chatham County Courthouse. In May, 2010 a fire almost destroyed the courthouse but the plaque was not damaged. It was then placed in storage at the Chatham County Historical Society. Efforts are being made to find a new display location.
