The Granite Men of the Henri-Chapelle Book Signing

October 25th, 2013 · No Comments · Books, City Library, Events, Local Author Series, Local History, Main Branch, NH Room

indexDuring World War II, forty New Hampshire servicemen fought the war on foreign soil and were killed in action never to return home to their families.  They are buried in the 57‐acre American military cemetery called Henri‐Chapelle American Cemetery in Belgium.  Seven of the deceased heroes were Manchester residents. Aimee Fogg of Gilford will discuss her book, entitled The Granite Men of HenriChapelle, which tells the stories of the New Hampshire men in the U.S. Army who sacrificed their lives and are buried at Henri‐Chapelle American Cemetery.  Aimee will reveal their life stories, concentrating on our Manchester heroes.  Signed copies of the book will be available for purchase.  Plan to join us on October 29th at 6:30 PM for this thought provoking event. For more information, contact Cynthia O’Neil at 624‐6550.
