Murvin Sisson Left And A Fellow Soldier Served Their Country in World War I

World War I, 1917-1918

Two hundred and ninety-eight men from Richmond County served in World War I: of these twelve died in the war. Patriotism was in evidence in civic programs and religious services in the county as Red Cross volunteers worked to support the soldiers, sailors and airmen in uniform.
