More Than Names on a Wall

John R. Long, Madison County's own historian, has compiled a book entitled More Than Names on A Wall. Building from the list of 167 names on the Madison County War Memorial monument at Liberty Gardens Park in north Jackson, and adding 23 who are not on the monument, the author created biographical abstracts concerning each of the 190 men from Jackson and Madison County who died as a direct result of World War II. This information was gleaned by scanning through Jackson Sun newspaper articles and obituaries, high school yearbooks,  gravestone inscriptions, and other sources.  references are given to the location of the original articles in the newspapers.
