Information

Title

St. Paul's Episcopal Church World War I Memorial Plaque (VA)

Description

A bronze plaque featuring an eagle with outstretched wings at top, an elaborate floral border, two shields with crosses, and Celtic lettering honors three named members of St. Paul's who made "the supreme sacrifice during the World War" as well as those from the church "who gave themselves in patriotic service during the years 1917-1918" (wording that would seem eloquently to encapsulate both those who served in the military and those who served the war effort in other capacities, including on the home front). The plaque does not bear a date but, like most church plaques, was likely unveiled soon after the Armistice (c. 1919-1921).
