Graves Program

63633_GW-grave_md

The Revolutionary Graves Program honors the final resting place of patriots of the American Revolution. The components of the program include Revolutionary Grave Registration and Revolutionary Grave Marking. The National Society maintains a file of Revolutionary Graves that is becoming the basis for a data base available to the public at our National Society Website. The Pennsylvania Society maintains a similar registration on the PASSAR website, of which Ron Eisert of the George Washington Chapter has registered over 250 graves in Washington County. The National Society sells brass markers which can be placed at the graves of Revolutionary patriots, a visible symbol to the public that the person buried at that place aided in the American Revolution.
