|Ladd and Whitney|
My title, The Minutemen of 1861, was taken from information from the Commonwealth of Massachusetts's webpage. And, some below information from that site is shared below.
Photos and write-ups located on FindAGrave.
From Wikipedia, The History of Lowell, Massachusetts provides valuable information.
Another good site.
Finally, from a google search, using the key words: "Ladd Whitney Lowell Civil War" I found a wealth of information on these men, Lowell and the Civil War.
|Actual dedication was moved to June 17, 1865, due to|
President Lincoln's death.
