CIVIL WAR VIRTUAL CEMETERY

John A. Jackson, KSGenWeb Civil War Coordinator, writes us to say:

"I have been posting the Civil War veteran tombstone pictures that I have been amassing since 2004 on the following Flickr page:

http://www.flickr.com/photos/civilwar_veterans_tombstones/sets/

They are from every state almost that participated in the Civil War including Missouri and my photos are of veterans who were on both sides of the war."

He's not kidding, either. There are hundreds of gravestone photos in his Flickr photo sets. Photo sets for a cemetery can include anywhere from 1 photo (Hosey Hill Cemetery, Cherokee County, KS) to 149 photos (Gerard Cemetery, Crawford County, KS). Most photos do seem to be from Kansas cemeteries, but you may want to take a look regardless. Maybe John's efforts will inspire some of you to start documenting grave sites of CW veterans in your area!
