I have sent the message shown below to historical groups that have an interest in the subject. I recently made a major update to the database on the Camp William Penn website. The book, “Where Have all of the Soldiers Gone” (Amazon Books) also had a major update of an additional 100 pages. The book now contains almost 800 cemeteries of burial locations of soldiers of the Camp William Penn Regiments.

A major, major USCT (Civil War – Unites States Colored Troops) research tool has just been added to the Camp William Penn, Cheltenham Township, Montgomery County, Pa. website (Database and Archive). Every USCT soldier of the Camp William Penn regiments has his own computer folder, 18,000 folders, 400,000 documents. Every soldier’s military file. Some of the soldier’s photo, death certificate, grave location, gravestone photo, stories, genealogy and more. A major new development in USCT genealogical and historical research.
