dedicated May 30, 1919

Description

The Mohegan Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution erected a memorial in Ossining's Nelson Park (northeast corner) in 1919 to commemorate the 36 men from Ossining and the neighboring communities of Briarcliff and Scarborough who lost their lives in World War I. The memorial consists of a bronze plaque with a domed top affixed to a large boulder. The plaque at top features the shield of the US encircled by a wreath of laurel and oak leaves with two American flags on either side. It was dedicated on Memorial Day, 1919.

Ossining native Edmond C. C. Genet, whose name is among those recorded here, was the first American to die in action in WWI after the declaration of war.
