“Additional Confederate Soldiers Identified in Green Hill Cemetery”
So before the start of the January meeting there will be a presentation on the identification of three additional soldiers buried in the Confederate Lot at Green Hill Cemetery. All three of these soldiers were casualties of the Gettysburg Campaign and one was killed in the 1863 Battle of Falling Waters. A short history of the origin and creation of the UDC Confederate Lot will be discussed. How the soldiers previously identified will be reviewed. Plans to memorialize these newly identified soldiers and the possibility of identifying others will also be covered.
The meeting will be on Thursday, January 8, 2015 at 6:30 PM at the North Berkeley Public Library, 1255 T.J. Jackson Drive, in Spring Mills. The presentation will be followed by a short business meeting.

For the 150th anniversary of the Civil War, the West Virginia Division of Tourism has created the website “The Child of the Rebellion” covering the Civil War in West Virginia. In it are nine regional videos covering specific areas of the state. This website is very informative and well done. Note that the Battle of Falling Waters is called Hoke’s Run in the Eastern Panhandle video. Although it is aimed to promote tourism, this website contains a tremendous amount of information. Here is the link: http://wvtourism.com/minisites/civilwar.aspx
In addition the new West Virginia Civil War Trails brochure is available on the West Virginia Tourism website to be viewed or downloaded.
