1919 Soldiers' Welcome Home
« on: December 09, 2005, 03:23:56 PM »
A resident contributed this to the archive.  Note the parade route and the "Wm M. Johnson" in the "Reviewing Party",- no doubt Sen. Johnson for whom the Library is named.  If anyone has more information on this, please follow up with a post.

I may have pictures of this parade.  My great uncle 1st Sgt George Hedges had left a photo album during the Mexican Border in 1916, WW1 in France and unknown pictures of soldiers parading.

I will post them soon.  Are you familiar with the Hackensack High School Veterans Website?  I share a lot of my research with them and many of my pictures are on their site under WW1

These photos are from my great uncle George Hedges of a parade but did not identify the location.  For years I've been trying to figure out where they  were taken and although I suspected Hackensack, I couldn't find anything until I read this post.

Original comparative placard from June 29,1919 honoring Hackensack soldiers who gave their lives during the Great War.  From the photo album of 1st Sgt. George Hedges / 114th Infantry from WW1.

I can't read all the names...but I wonder if some of the names match those on the memorial tree planting in Fochini Park ??

Click on the image above to make it a little bigger.

Just glancing, I noticed many names match. Maybe all of them.
