Bedford, Mass. in the World War

An Account of the Citizens of the Town of Bedford Military and Civilian in the Great War with Germany 1917 - 1919


We have acquired and scanned a copy of a publication which was included as an addendum to the Annual reports on the Officers of the Town of Beford for the Financial Year ending December 31, 1927. This addendum consists chiefly of the stories of townsmen who fought in the war. We hope you find this information of value either as an historical account or for genealogical purposes.
