Group seeks help with museum

The Pulaski County Civil War Sesquicentennial Committee is seeking information on civil war soldiers and graves in Pulaski county in order to create a burial register for display in the courthouse museum and local libraries.
Anyone having documentation pertaining to a Civil War soldier’s grave can pick up a burial register form at the Pulaski County Administration Office at 143 Third Street in Pulaski, call 980-7705, or email civilwar150th@pulaskicounty.org.
If possible, the committee would also like to obtain a brief history of the soldier to include in the register. Information they would like to include, if available, is rank, regiment, branch, Confederate or Union, state, enlistment date and discharge date, date and place of birth, cemetery name and location, whether the grave is marked, marriage record, maiden name of spouse and her date and place of birth, and the names of their children.
Once completed, the register will be on display at the Pulaski County Courthouse Museum and the public libraries.
The General Assembly of Virginia created the Virginia Sesquicentennial of the American Civil War Commission in 2006 (HB 1440) to prepare for and commemorate the sesquicentennial of Virginia’s participation in the American Civil War.
