From Playing Fields to Battlefields

by Peter Mackie '59

The following story will appear in the Winter 2009-10 edition of the Brown Bear Magazine.

At the Thayer Street entrance to Lincoln Field stands the majestic Soldiers Memorial Gate. Dedicated in 1921, it bears tribute to the 43 Brunonians who lost their lives in World War I. A more recent monument, created in memory of Brown's men and women who lost their lives in World War II, Korea and Vietnam is also located on Lincoln Field. In Wriston Quadrangle, Patriots Court honors Brown men who died in the service of their country since 1775.
