Old North Church History
The enduring fame of the Old North began on the evening of April 18, 1775, when the church sexton, Robert Newman, climbed the steeple and held high two lanterns as a signal from Paul Revere that the British were marching to Lexington and Concord by sea and not by land. This fateful event ignited the American Revolution.
The Old North Church is officially known as Christ Church in the City of Boston. It was built in 1723, and is the oldest standing church building in Boston. In 1775, on the eve of Revolution, the majority of the congregation were loyal to the British King and many held official positions in the royal government, including the Royal Governor of Massachusetts, making Robert Newman's loyalty to the Patriot cause even more extraordinary. The King gave the Old North its silver that was used at services and a bible.
The New Jersey Korean War Veterans Memorial, like the previously completed Vietnam Veterans Memorial, will help to heal the spiritual and psychological wounds suffered by the Korean War veterans, their families and friends. Part of the healing process is to understand America’s involvement in that struggle, what it accomplished, and the contribution of our men and women who served.
Showing Dog Tags on both the soldier that is being carried, and the mourning soldier holding the tags out front, this memorial should help with the healing process as wanted by the committee and the sculptors who presented it.
