The Military History of Medway, Massachusetts


The Military History of Medway, Massachusetts - E.O. Jameson. The Military History of Medway is that of “the average New England town in times which tried men’s souls. The early settlers were called not only to fell the primeval forests and reduce to cultivation the wild lands, but were summoned to leave their wives and children for days and weeks poorly provided for, and go on a war ‘turn’ to fight the Indians far to the westward. The great struggle of the Revolution made ‘minute-men’ and soldiers of almost the entire male population, and the preservation of the Union laid a patriotic people under heavy contributions of treasure and of blood. The following pages are devoted to preserve the names and honorable services of those who endured the exposures of warfare for country, for liberty, and for God."
