U.S. Colored Heavy Artillery

Unmarked Civil War Veterans Graves
Caldwell Co., Ky. Cemeteries

The following records were provided by Richard P'Pool.

Richard has researched and has extensive knowledge of Civil War Veterans who fought for both the North & South who are buried in Caldwell and surrounding communities cemeteries.
One of Richard's "Life Missions" is to try to make sure all Veteran's graves are marked.   He has worked hard, trying to do this and has marked or helped mark many veteran's graves of all wars in several counties.
The following are Civil War solders who fought for the U.S. Colored Heavy Artillery.   They are buried at Cedar Hill Cemetery, Princeton, Ky., in the colored section in unmarked graves.
Richard would like to see that they are acknowledged, that people know that these men once walked this earth and served their country with honor.
