Men of Granite

HIGH ABOVE FRANCONIA NOTCH, THE GATEWAY TO northern New Hampshire, was the profile of the Old Man of the Mountain.

Daniel Webster once said, “Men hang out their signs indicative of their respective trades; shoe makers hang out a gigantic shoe; jewelers a monster watch, and the dentist hangs out a gold tooth, but up in the mountains of New Hampshire, God Almighty has hung out a sign to show that he makes men.”

These are the true stories of New Hampshire’s fighting men—soldiers, sailors, marines, and airmen who made significant contributions in their service to their country from the French and Indian War to Iraq.
