Military

Since our Nation's founding in 1776, America has often called upon its citizens to protect the Union and its allies.  The men and women of Acton and Shapleigh have always rallied to this call.  Leaving their woodland homesteads during the Revolutionary War, it's citizens joined Massachusetts Regiments.  With little or no pay and meager supplies, these men fought gallantly for our independence.  Over the years, Shapleigh and Acton's men and women unselfishly left the security of their homes, family and friends to defend our Country.
 
Thank you to all our war veterans.
