In the Summer of 2017,  I visited the New Hampshire State Veterans Cemetery in Boscawen, New Hampshire. My NH Veterans Memorials page was quite popular and I wanted  to add another page to my website: Images of New Hampshire History.

I have photographed all of the Memorials in the Memorial walkway as well as the 20 Points of New Hampshire Military History. This page, dedicated to the New Hampshire State Veterans Cemetery is now the 2nd most visited page on my website. With the blessing of the NH State Veterans Cemetery Association, I am in the process of writing a book about the History of the New Hampshire State Veterans Cemetery for its 25th Anniversary. Due to the amount of research required to capture 25 years ofhistory of the New Hampshire State Veterans Cemetery, writing should conclude sometime following the Anniversary celebration on September 24th of this year with a possible publish date of Memorial Day, May 30th, 2023.


Please use the Contact Page if you are able to assist my project with Videos or Photos of the Groundbreaking,  Dedication Ceremony (May and September 1997) or any specific Memorial Dedication Ceremony (Korean War, US Army, US Navy, US Air Force, US Coast Guard, Global War on Terror, etc.).

I have at this time written about the legislative history of the establishment of the New Hampshire State Veterans Cemetery, the building of the chapel and initial columbariums. I have documented the 20 Points of New Hampshire Military History and the Monuments and Memorials in the Memorial Walkway dedicated under Director Roger Desjardins.

With a recent cut in hours by my current employer (a 2 day workweek) I can research and write 3 days per week as compared to only Saturdays.  I am currently focusing on the Monuments and Memorials in the Memorial Walkway dedicated under Director Mike Horne. Following these memorials, I will document the ones dedicated under the current director, Shawn Buck.  The final chapters will document the Heritage Learning Center, Annual Events (Memorial Day, 100 Days of Remembrance, December wreaths), the 25th Anniversary Celebration and finally future projects such as the Military Suicide Loss Memorial of which I am honored to be on the planning committee.
