Rensselaer County, NY GenWeb site - Civil War temporary cemetery at Fortress Monroe, VA
New York Civil War Soldiers
Originally Buried at
Fortress Monroe, Virginia


These soldiers were from New York state; they were not necessarily from Rensselaer County.

In June 2005, Pamela A. Schenian sent the following email message to me: "There is no national cemetery at Fort Monroe. It is located off-post in Hampton http://www.cem.va.gov/nchp/hampton.htm. A cemetery was started at Fort Monroe during the Civil War when it was unsafe to transport burials off-post. As soon as hostilities moved out of the area, relocation of the burials to the National Cemetery in Hampton, or to other off-post cemeteries, began."
