The Derry Civil War Memorial is located in front of the First Parish Church in East Derry. The other war memorials to Derry soldiers are all located at MacGregor Park, next to the public library on Broadway.

According to T.J. Cullinane of the "Friends of the Forest Hill Cemetery" group, there are about another 100 missing names that should be on the Civil War monument. He is working on identifying all the Civil War tombstones in the Forest Hill Cemetery, which is located right behind the First Parish Church.

George Thom

The last name on the list, George Thom, appears to have been added later. According to this is General George Thom, son of James Thom of Londonderry and Harriet Coffin of Gloucester, Massachusetts. He graduated from West Point, class of 1839. "He was the Chief of Topographical Engineers for General Halleck and created the Official Thom map for the Battle of Shiloh. General Thom held comminssions in all the military grades up to include that of Colonel of Engineers U.S. Army with the Bevet Rank of Brigadier General. He served his country for 44 consecutive years. He donated a stained glass window to the First Parish Church in East Derry, NH..." [this monument stands in front of the same church]. General Thom is buried at Forest Hill Cemetery, behind the church.
