LVMAC’s Monuments and Markers Project
This webpage is a portal to an electronic product which records the work originally begun in 2005 to document all the military monuments and markers in the Lehigh Valley (Lehigh and Northampton counties) for the purposes of promoting awareness of our local veterans’ contributions in service to our nation and to encourage public officials and citizens’ groups to adopt and care for sometimes forgotten memorials.
The sacrifices made by our men and women in uniform who have gone before us must never be forgotten. Their willingness to defend this nation has secured us freedoms, rights and blessings. Therefore, when we erect war monuments to our military history, they should do more than serve as remembrances of individuals and their feats. They ought give us pause to reflect on why these men and women served at the particular times in our history. Only then can we hope to give their sacrifices meaning and everlasting value.
The site provides additional information on how to add monuments or markers to our collection.
