Lower plaque


In 1921, Calhoun County memorialized its casualities of World War I
with this monument, unveiled on Armistice Day, as a proud testament
to the bravery of these men.

Nearly a hundred years later, in 2014, military research conducted by
The Anniston Star's editorial board discovered at least nineteen
additional U.S. military personnel whose names, for reasons unknown,
were not included on the original plaque.

In 2016, the City of Anniston erected this memorial, providing these nineteen
Calhoun County casualties of the Great War their deserved place of honor.
