New Hampshire World War I Military” a series of stories that revolve around the lives of heroic men and women who participated in The Great War (or World War) of 1917-1919. Most of these heroes fell on the battlefield. Others served in hospitals and on the home-front.

My stories are ongoing, and URL links will be added to this page. If you are a relative, a friend, or an interested party who has photographs or letters, corrections, or personal remembrances, I would love to hear from you in the comments section. I want to thank Debbie LaValley of Boscawen, New Hampshire for taking the photographs of the plaque for this article.

-New Hampshire and World War I-

New Hampshire participated in World War One by providing over 20,000 men for military service, investing $75,465,890 in the first four Liberty Loans, supplying 150,000 members of the Red Cross and contributing $935,000 to that organization’s work. Numerous groups including The Young Men’s and Young Women’s Christian Associations, The Salvation Army, the Jewish Welfare Board, and the Federation of Women’s Clubs, volunteered and donated funds. [From “New Hampshire: Resources, Attractions, and Its People,” by Hobart Pillsbury; New York, 1927, III, page 804].

New Hampshire’s national guard, composed of 2,750 men, was mustered into service on 25 July 1917.  They left Concord NH on August 22 and became part of the 103rd Infantry Regiment, 26th Division–the famed, “Yankee Division.”  (Approximately two-fifths of this Division came from New Hampshire, about half were from Maine, and the rest were from Vermont and Massachusetts). The 26th Division was in France by the end of September 1917.  New Hampshire men and women also served in other regiments and divisions.

In March of 1918 an epidemic of influenza struck the United States, and quickly spread to Europe and the battlefield.  New Hampshire was hard hit both in Europe and at home. A significant number of New Hampshire’s military and civilian population died from influenza-related diseases.

When World War I ended, the New Hampshire legislature took action to recognize those who died. $500,000 was set aside for a joint venture with the State of Maine to build a Memorial Bridge across the Piscataqua River, between Portsmouth (NH) and Kittery (ME). This 1,200-feet long bridge was opened to the public in August of 1923.  In 1919 the New Hampshire legislature voted to have a bronze memorial tablet created and placed in the State House. It bears the 697 names of New Hampshire residents who died in the military, naval or auxiliary services of the United States or any of the Allied countries. A transcription can be found below, and a photograph of this tablet is included in this article.

Some of the photographs shown in my stories are taken from the book “Soldiers of the Great War,” compiled by W.M. Haulsee, F.G. Howe, and A.C. Doyle. The research into details of who they were is my own compilation from many sources, historical and genealogical. So many people have asked me about how I perform my research that I wrote a story called ” A Quick Guide To Researching United States WWI Military Genealogy.”

150 Responses to New Hampshire World War I Military: Heroes of The Great War

  1. The blog post tied everything together perfectly! Transcribing all those names was s true gift to the men!!!

  2. Amy says:

    Seeing that long list of names gave me pause. What a horrible loss of life in a war that did not end all wars. It reminded me of the Vietnam War Memorial in DC where I stood and wept, looking at the enormity of what was lost in that war. Will we ever learn?

    My grandfather, Dr. Nathaniel Robert Mason served in WWI. He was born and grew up in North Conway; and was a student of Yale and Harvard Medical University. I have attached a link to my family tree page in wordpress which shows photos he had taken while he was in France and also a newspaper article about him.

    I visited North Conway last year in hopes of finding the WWI marker which lists his name, but did not find it. Possibly Fryeburg may have the marker which lists him. Would you know? Thanks!

    My uncle, Everett William McClary, was in the NH National Guard that left Concord on August 22, 1917. He served in France as a Pvt. in Co. B, 103rd Infantry Regiment. Unfortunately his military records were destroyed by the 1973 fire at the Records Center. If anyone knows the history of Co. B, I would love to know about it. Actions of the 103rd Infantry are well documented but not at the Company level.
