Timelines

Through the Legacy Project at Mount Hebron Cemetery, we seek to honor and remember all the veterans who eternally rest within our gates. They risked, and sometimes gave, their lives for our freedom. Understanding the world these individuals lived in helps shine light on the motives that drove these ordinary people to do extraordinary things. This timeline project seeks to achieve that goal by using the information we receive from the public or can gather in our research about our veterans and placing them into the greater context of their era. We are attempting to provide more context to the world that these brave men and women lived in and why their service is so important even to this day. This is by no means a one-person job. A special thanks must be extended to all the individuals who took the time to submit information, stories and pictures about their loved ones. Together we will keep their legacies alive.
