Description
Graven in Stone and Buried under the Shield: A Guide to Gravestones of Maryland’s Civil War Veterans by Ralph E. Eshelman and A. Douglas Rawlinson
The current revised edition is January 2020 -- IN PROCESSING

This inventory contains 11,861 American Civil War veterans buried in 1,106 cemeteries in Maryland. Of these, 20 soldiers or sailors are buried in cemeteries where the precise location is unknown (Appendix 1) and another 1,687 Maryland veterans for whom we have no cemetery location (Appendix 3). Of these later veterans 1,296 died in Maryland and the remaining 291 died in other states. It is unclear how many who died in Maryland were buried in Maryland and how many who died in other states were transported back to Maryland for burial. What we can say is that this inventory includes burial information for over 10,000 Civil War veterans known to be buried in Maryland.
