Freedom Isn’t Free

Memorial Day is the holiday set aside to pay tribute to those who died serving in the military. This is the most complete list of Chattooga County residents who died serving in the military.

Memorial Day is a federal holiday observed on the last Monday of May.

As this is a Federal holiday, not only will schools and libraries be closed, most federal and state offices will be closed and there will be no mail deliveries on Memorial Day, observed this year on Monday, May 31st.

Never forget, always remember.

The following is considered to be the most thorough list available of the Chattooga County citizens who lost their lives in the American Civil War. These men perished in battles all across the south and into northern territories during our nation’s bloodiest war. Due to the passage of time and the lack of consistent record keeping, there are thought to be some soldiers too young to officially join the ranks and others who simply took up arms and fought, who did not make this list. In addition, many men were listed using only initials. Under the circumstances, this is the most accurate list of Chattoogans killed in action during the Civil War.

The list was provided by records kept by WWII Veteran James Rowan (Ryan) Hicks (deceased).
