CHATHAM, NJ - In 1918, five Red Oak trees were planted in front of the town's public school, which is now the Chatham Borough Municipal Building, in honor of the five Chatham residents who gave their lives during World War I.

The trees are no longer there, so the Chatham Borough Historical Society used the occasion of the 100th anniversary of the United States' entry into World War I to plant a tree and place a plaque in honor of Chatham's World War I fallen.

Jackie Pindak and Helen Ann Rosenfeld researched the lives of the five fallen and their involvement in Chatham life and World War I.
