Vermont's Pre-WWII military burials

According to Wikipedia, The Works Progress Administration (WPA; renamed in 1939 as the Work Projects Administration) was an American New Deal agency, employing millions of people (mostly unskilled men) to carry out public works projects.

One of those was a Graves Registration project in Vermont, a survey of military burials in Vermont prior to World War II, completed sometime in the late 1930s. The results of this survey are hundreds of 3x5 index cards in a filing cabinet in the main reading room at the Vermont Historical Society's Library in Barre. The cards are backed up by eight boxes of material that detail the projects with details of sources used, sometimes maps of cemeteries, etc., and a backup set of the index cards.

The following soldiers had cards in the index that we used when records show the gravesites were not marked, or when we were unable to further identify a final resting place.
