Area Medal of Honor recipients to be recognized in traveling exhibit


A new traveling exhibit will recognize a handful of Medal of Honor winners from around the region.

The display features several St. Lawrence and Oswego County Civil War heroes, a group of little-known Jefferson County Medal of Honor recipients who served at Madison Barracks at the turn of the century and a former member of the 10th Mountain Division from World War II.

The display will be at the St. Lawrence County Historical Society’s Silas Wright Museum, Canton, in August, at Flower Memorial Library in Watertown from Wednesday until Aug. 7, at the Carthage Free Library from Aug. 8 to 21 and the Sackets Harbor Historical Society from Aug. 22 to Sept. 6.

The display is organized by the office of state Sen. Patricia A. Ritchie, R-Heuvelton.
