In Stockbridge, Massachusetts, the town's war memorial is dedicated.
Only the second Soldiers' Monument in western Massachusetts was dedicated at Stockbridge in Berkshire County on this day. The twenty-four foot high memorial, located in the public square, bore the names of the twenty-seven men from the town who had died in the war. Governor Alexander Bulloch attended and Henry Sedgewick of New York, a relative of one of the dead, gave the oration. (By John Osborne)
