Description

The Monument Featured on This Magnet is From Victory Park in Manchester, New Hampshire

Manchester's Victory Park is typical of small community memorials found throughout the United States. A municipal park, it is dedicated to "all the Manchester veterans and current military personnel who have answered the country's call to arms" and features an obelisk topped by Lady Liberty holding the flag in triumph and a trio of soldiers at the base. The park is dedicated to Private Rene A. Gagnon, a home-town boy who was one of the six men involved in the famous raising of the American flag on the heights of the island of Iwo Jima in 1945, an event that was captured by a photographer and made legendary. After the war - Gagnon went on to fight in China after Iwo Jima - he returned home and lived out the rest of his days in Manchester. Victory Park is also home to the weekly municipal farmer's market and regular events hosted by the city's library.

Visiting Manchester, New Hampshire

Manchester is largest city in the state of New Hampshire - though it is still a relatively small burg with only around 110,000 residents. It has a small-town feel, though it has some larger attractions, including the Mall of New Hampshire, one of the largest in the state. The city's Verizon Wireless Arena holds up to 12,000 patrons and is the site of sporting events, concerts and other forms of entertainment. City landmarks include the Union Station railway station, the Hampshire Plaza and City Hall Plaza towers and the General Stark House. Further afield, visitors to Manchester can enjoy the sites of the city of Boston, New Hampshire's White Mountains (including Mount Washington, the highest peak in the East) or the dramatic coastlines of Maine - including Arcadia National Park.
