The Signal Mountain Genealogical Society was treated to a special presentation at their meeting on Tuesday.
Linda Mines, the Hamilton County Historian, gave a moving talk on the Tennessee Medal of Honor recipients of World War I. Ms. Mines captured not only the bravery and courage of these men but also their humanity. The speech was a fitting tribute to all those who have served and made great sacrifices to protect our country and our freedoms.
President Jim Dodson presented Ms. Mines with an honorary membership in the Society. This award recognized her outstanding contributions in the fields of history and genealogy, her willingness to share her passion for these subjects throughout the Chattanooga area, and her friendship and devotion to our organization.
The Signal Mountain Genealogical Society meets on the first Tuesday of each month at 1 p.m. at the Walden Town Hall, 1836 Taft Highway. Visitors are always welcome.
