Editor's Note: A correction to the above story "About 100 veterans of the Civil War are buried there as well, volunteers said. So far volunteers have identified the graves of about 20 — 10 from the Union and 10 from the Confederacy". The cemetery has 100 veterans from ALL wars buried there, not 100 veterans from the Civil War.
