I’m paying homage, in particular, to all of the African American gravestones of former soldiers who are buried in various graveyards along Highway 71. There is a website designed & maintained by the U.S. Veteran Affairs office to help individuals locate graves of veterans, http://gravelocator.cem.va.gov/index.html. Many of the individuals below predate the criteria for listing on the website.
