Most Newarkers are aware of the history behind the University of Delaware’s Memorial Hall – the stately building that was constructed in memory of Delawareans killed in World War I.

 

However, while the building is the city’s most prominent war memorial, several lesser-known sites around the city also pay tribute to Newarkers who gave their lives in service to their country.
