Gainesville Great Hanging Website Launched

On February 21, 2014, the Great Hanging Memorial Foundation announced the launch of their new website dedicated to the Great Hanging at Gainesville, Texas 1862.  Click on image below to go to the website.

The Great Hanging 1862
The mission of the Great Hanging Memorial Foundation as explained on the website is:
"The Great hanging Memorial Foundation is a 501 c3 (non-profit) organization  and was created to honor those who lost their lives, as well as preserve Civil War history and educate Americans about these events."

The Great Hanging Memorial Foundation is seeking donations from individuals, private foundations, and corporations. Your financial support for the Memorial would be greatly appreciated and would help to make the proposed Memorial a reality.  

You can also support the construction of the Great Hanging Memorial by purchasing a custom engraved Granite Paver. Your paver with its personal message will be placed in the walkway for visitors to see.  To purchase a granite paving stone engraved in memory or in honor of someone, click here.  Purchasing a paver in memory of your Great Hanging ancestor would be a wonderful way to honor those who died in the Great Hanging at Gainesville.  Hopefully everyone who died during the hangings will have a paver in their memory.

Please consider making a donation or purchasing a paver so that this Memorial can become a reality!
