Civil War veterans recently received new headstones

Members of Moses A. Baldwin Camp No. 544, a New York chapter of the Sons of Union Veterans of the Civil War, gathered at Greenfield Cemetery in Uniondale (Suffolk County) on Oct. 15, 2022 to dedicate new headstones to four veterans of the Civil War who are buried there.

The ceremony was part of an ongoing project to locate the resting places of veterans of the Union Army. The Sons of Union Veterans of the Civil War located unmarked graves of Civil War veterans and then obtains a headstone for the grave from the Veterans Administration.

In addition to the four veterans of the Civil War,  a veteran of the Spanish-American War and a veteran of World War I, all buried in Greenfield Cemetery, received headstones commissioned by the VA and installed by the Town of Hempstead.
