Resting Peacefully in the Smokies: Documenting Veterans Buried in GSMNP

Brown Bag 2022 Lecture Series with Joe Emert, Marilyn Childress, and Sheila Evans

 

When it was discovered there was not a list of veterans buried in the GSMNP, a group was formed in 2020 to accumulate one. What started with 163 graves is now over 230 identified veteran burials, from the American Revolution to the Vietnam War.–2020-2021 ETHS Award Winning Project.
