As at the time in the vast trenches, the depositories of slain, Northern and Southern, after the great battles—not only where the scathing trail passed those years, but radiating since in all the peaceful quarters of the land—we see, and ages yet may see, on monuments and gravestones, singly or in masses to thousands or tens of thousands, the significant word UNKNOWN.
The Significant Word is dedicated to the forgotten past in an effort to shed light on questions raised in the present.
Initially begun to document veterans stories, my blog has become a more varied endeavor to examine the curiosities of history. Topics have included biographies, Q&A, and in-depth artifact studies. Also hoping to bring in guest authors and their wealth of knowledge and diverse interests!
Please contact me with any thoughts, concerns, and general moments of zen. While this project was designed by myself, it certainly shouldn’t be driven by me. This is our shared history.
