A Moving Tribute to Chatham's WWI Heroes

On June 10, 2017 the Chatham Historical Society commemorated the 100th anniversary of the United States entering the Great War by remembering Lieut. Eugene P. Hubbard, Sgt. Van Horn D. Wolf, Private Paul Van Fleet, Private Fred Reinhold Pihlman and Private Frederick Percy Parcells, the five Chatham soldiers who lost their lives in France during the “war to end all wars.”

In France during the Great War, five Chatham Borough men lost their lives. In 1919, their sacrifice was honored by the planting of five red oak trees on the grounds of Public School #1, now Chatham Borough Hall. Sadly none remain.
