Altar of the Nation, Cathedral of the Pines, Rindge (1946)

Sixty thousand men and women from New Hampshire were sent to every corner of the globe during World War II; 1,600 did not return. While monuments were erected throughout the state to honor these brave men and women, few rival the Cathedral of the Pines’ Altar of the Nation, built in 1946 and recognized by Congress as a national memorial in 1957.
