Regimental History

There are over 650 Union veterans buried in the Seattle, G.A.R. Cemetery. In early 2020, an Island County, WA teacher expressed interest in beginning a long-term project in which middle school students would create birth - to - death biographical profiles on those vets. 

In this vein, a number of veterans were chosen to become the initial focus  of this exercise. The Covid 19 medical pandemic, however, has resulted in this project being placed on hold. It is hoped that at some point in the future, students, or others will be able to complete biographies on some or  all of these veterans.
