In 1924, four plaques were mounted on the facade of Natchez's Memorial Hall to honor World War I soldiers from Adams County, Mississippi. Names of African American soldiers, women, and others were omitted when these plaques were first dedicated. After rehabilitating the building for use as a federal courthouse, GSA partnered with the local community and veterans groups to compile a complete and accurate accounting of all veterans. This film documents that effort, which culminated in the dedication of new memorial plaques that now reflect the names of all Adams County World War I veterans.
