The Marianas Memorial was dedicated on June 13, 2004, in memory of indigenous Chamorros and Carolinians of the Northern Marianas who died during World War II. Caught in a war not of their making, the people of the Northern Marianas, like many civilians throughout the Pacific, became victims of war. The Marianas Memorial honors Chamorros and Carolinians who lost their lives as a result of war-related causes from the beginning of American aerial bombardment in Saipan on June 11, 1944, to the closure of civilian camps on July 4, 1946. The memorial consists of ten granite panels listing 929 names.
