Book Signing-The Making of a Memorial-David Carney

October 14 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm

Come by to meet and speak with publisher and writer David Carney about his book The Making of a Memorial. It tells the stories behind Huntsville’s Veterans Memorial in Downtown Huntsville. We are so honored to have him!

The book contains stories of the brave warriors we honor as well as the soldiers portrayed by the

statues, the sculptor, and the many people whose patriotic passion created this memorial.

 

“This book, The Making of a Memorial,  captures the essence and deepest meaning in the making of THIS
memorial, the Huntsville/Madison County Veterans Memorial. This is indeed a
coffee table book for all households and classrooms that would serve well to
educate our children and grand-children on the magnitude of the Courage and
Sacrifice required to ensure freedom for all, as well as the perseverance of
a few to provide a solemn place of beauty and reverence where family and
friends can find peace in the memory of lost loved ones.”
Brig Gen Bob Drolet, Chairman of the Board

“This book meticulously documents the years-long effort to create a proper
Huntsville/Madison County Veterans Memorial in the heart of downtown, and
puts faces on the statues and inscriptions by telling the stories of local
veterans and how they sacrificed for our country. ”
Shelly Haskins, News Editor, The Huntsville Times

“The Making of a Memorial” captures the essence of one of the premier
memorials honoring Alabama’s veterans, a memorial that properly pays tribute
to the local military heroes who valiantly fought for our freedom and gave
their lives in the defense of democracy… significant contribution to the
history of Alabama.
