Gathered to Rest - Bedford County, PA Civil War Veterans

Gathered to Rest - Bedford County, PA Civil War Veterans Authors: S. Von Lunen and J.R. Smysor
This book is for both genealogists and historians. Containing brief unit histories and companion articles, a listing of soldiers killed during the war and cause of death when known, as many obituaries and burials as could be located in the Gazette for those veterans remaining in Bedford County (with published corrections), and a series of post war companion articles concerning the activities of veterans organizations such as the G.A.R. and Bedford County Veterans Association in which many of these men participated.

Tragically, the Grand Army of the Republic (G.A.R.), which helped to form the foundation of many veteran organizations that followed it, never kept national or state records of their national, state or local chapters doings. These articles help to fill in this important missing piece of history for Bedford county and for your own family histories. Index.
