Spring Grove Cemetery is the resting place for numerous Union (and one Confederate) generals who served in various capacities during the Civil war. The grave-sites of men such as Joseph Hooker, William Lytle, and a few of the Fighting McCooks can be found within the bucolic landscape that Spring Grove offers. However, not to be forgotten, are those colonels who also gave to the Union war effort and who also rest within Spring Grove.
The cemetery website has a map where one can locate the generals, and below I have created a map for the colonels with their names in blue. Click on the picture for a larger version.
The following series of posts will provide a bit on each of these colonels and where they can be found in Spring Grove.
