Who 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 nearly 38,000 of Vermont's men and women who participated, on both sides of the war. (more)

Current Projects:

Adding gravestone pictures to our Virtual Cemeteries

Building a Virtual Museum of people, places and things.

Adding portraits, articles, and more to each person's record.
