World War I Display at Neva Lomason Library

The Carroll County Genealogical Society recently placed a super World War I display at the Neva Lomason Library in Carrollton, Georgia honoring the local young men from Carroll County who serviced during the war. If you are in the area you should stop by the library and take a look at the many items on display. An American flag bearing the 48 stars  under which they fought is on display. Other items on display include photos of those men  Killed In Action from Carroll County, a 1903 Springfield rifle, canteen, helmet, gas mask and other military items. Soldier’s letters from the front, as well as, pictures from that Great War may also be viewed.

There were 1,240 young men from Carroll County who served during World War I, and 28 of those men gave the ultimate sacrifice and were killed in action.
