Honor Roll: City of Pittsfield (Massachusetts) Civil War Honor Roll

Pittsfield is the county seat of Berkshire County, Massachusetts, the westernmost county in the commonwealth and it is a short but scenic 45-minute drive from the outskirts of Albany, New York, where my husband works two weeks out of every month.

In the center of town is the Memorial Park at the intersection of South, North, East and West Streets. At each end of the park is a memorial.

The front, or west, facade includes the following inscription:

For the dead
A tribute.
For the living
a memory.
For prosterity
an emblem
of loyalty to the flag
of their country.

The rear, or east, facade includes the following inscription:

With grateful recognition
Of the services of all her
Who upheld the honor and
Integrity of our beloved
The town of
Erects this monument in
Loving Memory of those
