Record of Death and Interment of Andover Soldiers and Sailors

Memorial Hall Library thanks Margaret Doherty Chambers and the Doherty Family of Andover and Philadelphia for contributing the funds for the conservation of the Record of Death and Interment of Andover Soldiers and Sailors.

This book is the primary document in the library's collection relating to the names and lives of the soldiers and sailors who fought in the Civil War from Andover. In addition to the names on the plaques on the walls in the library's grand hall, the book contains a separate entry on each name including the place and date of death and place of decoration for each soldier or sailor. The book also contains the notes on Andover's celebrations of “Decoration Day” from 1868 to 1878 including handwritten copies of the public addresses given on those days.

The restored volume of the Record of Death and Interment of Andover Soldiers and Sailors is available in the library's Andover Room. Also, a scanned electronic version is available below.
