Andover Military Men and Women

           

            Military service has been an important factor in the life of Andover residents from the very beginning.  Ezekiel Merrill, first white settler of Andover, was a veteran of the Revolutionary War, and participated in the defeat and surrender of the British at Saratoga.  Many of the other early settlers were also veterans of that war.

From Civil War Monument on Andover Common

          A monument to honor those from Andover who served in the Civil War was erected on the Common a few years ago.  This monument has many names that do not appear in either Andover: The First 175 Years or Andover Memorials.  Those names of those Civil War veterans who are not found in either Andover: The First 175 Years or Andover Memorials are listed below.  It should be noted that the spelling of some of these names may not be correct, and no attempt has been made to verify that they were either Andover residents or Civil War veterans.
