Records of Veterans from the Revolutionary War, War of 1812, Civil War, Spanish-American War and World War I, and Cemetery Maps
 Entire Record

Created by the Works Progress Administration (WPA) researchers in the mid-1930s, these cards and maps preserve information on over 8,000 veterans – soldiers, sailors and nurses -- buried in Westchester County, who served in the U.S. military prior to World War II and had ties with the county. The cemetery cards, one for each veteran, contain biographical, service and burial information. The over 350 cemetery maps cover the entire county (with the exception of some Yonkers cemeteries) and identify the graves of veterans by the conflict in which they served.

The five cards displayed here are representative samples for Westchester veterans from the Revolutionary War, the War of 1812, the Civil War, the Spanish-American War, and World War I. Also shown is a map for the cemetery in which Revolutionary War soldier Jacob Acker 2nd, of Bedford, was buried. Acker is one of the 375 Revolutionary War soldiers buried in Westchester for whom cemetery cards are available in this collection. Visit the Westchester County Archives website for an alphabetical list of all the veterans named in the collection.
