Introduction

Harrisburg Civil War Graves

The goal of this project is to link profiles of Civil war soldiers buried in the Harrisburg Cemetery, Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. Many of these soldiers fought in the Gettysburg battle of July 1—3. They were wounded and then sent to Harrisburg for medical treatment. They represent both Union and Confederate soldiers. These dead were unclaimed and buried in the Harrisburg Cemetery.

This project has three members:

  1. Michael Schindler
  2. Andrew Simpier
  3. Jo Gill

Here is a link to more pictures and information about this plot of Harrisburg Civil War Soldiers Graves[1]

Here is a link to the US Department of Veterans Affairs.[2] This may be of interest to anyone researching for any veteran who has a memorial stone placed from many sources.

Tasks

Goal

Goal is to some day have each soldier buried in this cemetery listed, and linked to his profile when created, and linked to his Find-A-Grave when/if created. Best scenario would be to actually find an existing profile and family on WikiTree if possible.

Harrisburg Cemetery

Decoration Day Headline May 30, 1900
Tales of the People and Places in Civil War History
Residing between Herr and State Streets in the eastern part of the city of Harrisburg is the historic Harrisburg Cemetery. The cemetery celebrated its 150th anniversary in 1995 and is the final resting place for many well-known citizens of all walks of life dating from the time of the revolution. The cemetery was officially chartered in 1845 and is currently on the National Register of Historic Places. Along with all the wonderful history, the cemetery is staffed by more than helpful and interested caretakers who know their way around the large plot.
With regard to this blog, there are many well known and "should be better known" Civil War heroes buried in the cemetery. There is also a special plot containing soldiers that died in the care of Harrisburg's Civil War hospital. This plot, Section Z, contains the graves of 155 soldiers, 15 of whom were Confederate [3] prisoners of war that died while in the Harrisburg Hospital station. Some of the better known Civil War officers/personalities interred in the cemetery include Major General John White Geary, Brigadier General James A Congdon, Brigadier General Joseph Knipe, Brigadier General George Zinn, Lt. Colonel George Fisher McFarland, Colonel James Cameron, Colonel Henry McCormick, and Secretary of State Simon Cameron.
A visit to this hallowed cemetery is more than worth your while. Whether perusing the Civil War heroes or just taking a stroll through this beautiful place, Harrisburg Cemetery well deserves its protection on the National Register of Historic Places for future generations to come and learn of the nation's past sacrifices as well as to help us understand the core values of what it means to be a citizen of the state and nation.

Memory

These are the grave sites and headstones of Civil War Soldier's buried in the Harrisburg Cemetery, Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. No known information on their family. This Soldier may have been wounded at the Battle of Gettysburg, and taken to Harrisburg, PA for medical treatment or died there after some other battle. I have pictures of soldier’s headstones in the Harrisburg Cemetery I took myself. Most of the bodies here were not local soldiers, but included both US and Confederate soldiers whose bodies were unclaimed and were buried here. I am posting these pictures in hopes that someone will claim these pictures and add to their tree.

Unclaimed at death ~ far, far from home. I long to be found, and homeward bound.

Just an FYi, Here is another virtual cemetery on FindAGrave, that may already have most of these 155 men documented. Before I realized that was on the web I started to concentrate specifically on the the section of 155 who were from the Battle of Gettysburg. I was originally impressed and excited when I first took a guided tour and saw rebs and yanks side by side.

Later I walked through the cemetery once a month during lunch as I had gotten a job 1/2 mile away. This is one of the most beautiful cemeteries I have ever seen, as it is so well landscaped, enough so that there is an annual tour offered that takes 2 hours to walk.

Oh, and here is the link to Glenn Koons, an almost legendary "graver" I suppose he has taken so many pictures of veterans in the Harrisburg area.
