Lest We Forget! Commemorating Vermont's participation in the War of Rebellion.

We are a grassroots project documenting the story of the State's contributions to the war, and what happened to the participants during and after the war.

For the purposes of this project, anyone who was born or died in Vermont, regardless of where they served, and anyone who served in a Vermont unit, regardless of where they were born, we consider a Vermonter.

To that end, to date we have documented more than 37,000 Vermonters (men and women) who participated, on both sides of the war.

You can navigate the site by using the "Menu Options" at the top right-hand side on every page on the site, or from a tailored menu on the left, which changes with the section you are visiting.

Major projects include:

More than 5,000 Virtual Cemeteries
A Virtual Museum of people, places and things,
Unit Rosters, Letters, Diaries, etc.
Monuments, cannon and Roadside Markers
Nativity and Pre-War Occupations
Research Aids
Frequently Asked Questions
