Civil War Cemeteries & Monuments in Wood County, Ohio
CEMETERIES | HISTORICAL MARKERS
The American Civil War pitted the North and South from 1861-1865. Thousands of Wood County men served in the war, and many died as a result of battle, prison camps, or sickness. In honor of the Civil War Sesquicentennial in 2011, the Wood County Historical Society and Wood County Chapter of the Ohio Genealogical Society has compiled a reference list of cemeteries and monuments for Civil War historians and enthusiasts.
Spend the afternoon touring the country roads and cemeteries of Northwest Ohio to see, first-hand, the monuments and grave markers that commemorate our Civil War Veterans. For additional detail, pick up a Wood County Highway Map at the Wood County Historical Center & Museum or the Wood County Courthouse, and visit www.buckeyetraffic.org/otis/roads/ for ODOT’s up-to-date road closures and detours.
These cemeteries are the final resting place of many Wood County Civil War soldiers.
