We are a grassroots project documenting the story of the State's contributions to the war, and what happened to the participants during and after the war. For the purposes of this project, anyone who was born or died in Vermont, regardless of where they served, and anyone who served in a Vermont unit, regardless of where they were born, we consider a Vermonter. To that end, to date we have documented nearly 38,000 Vermonters (men and women) who participated, on both sides of the war. (more)
Major projects include:
Adding gravestone pictures to more than 5,000 Virtual Cemeteries
Building a Virtual Museum of people, places and things,
Adding pictures, articles, etc., to the individual records we are developing
Please join us!
