Making of a Memorial

This course on the history of the Huntsville Madison County Veterans Memorial will cover site selection and study of the architect drawing emphasizing “sacred geometry.” It will also include stories of the people who modeled for the statues and of the Madison County Medal of Honor recipients, plus personal family stories of many of the Killed in Action. The Time Line of All Wars lists the number of casualties in every U.S. engagement since 1776. The names of every Madison County person killed in combat since WWI are listed along with a short synopsis of each war. All this and much more is contained in the book The Making of a Memorial, which was co-authored by the presenter, David Carney, a Madison County native.

This program is open to the public.
