(Courtesy of the National Civil War Museum, Harrisburg, PA) The Sesquicentennial of the Civil War is all but over. A number of events, listed below, dragged on until November 1865, and the Seventh Vermont did not muster out until the spring of 1866.
But, there are still gaps. We still don't know what happened to nearly 5,600 of the soldiers, sailors and marines who served. For some, we have nothing at all post-war, for others, just a date when and/or a location where they were last noted living. For about half, we know their final resting place and have photographs of their graves, or links to sites like Findagrave.com. We are working on it, but we could use more help. Interested?
