Civil War Veterans Buried at Whitehouse Cemetery
A new book has been published by John and Verna Rose for the benefit of the Waterville Historical Society. Civil War Veterans Buried in the Whitehouse Cemetery is a companion work to a similar volume for the Wakeman Cemetery in Waterville published in 2011. This book will be offered on a CD/DVD in PDF format as printing costs for a book with color photographs is nearly prohibitive. The book offers a biographical sketch and family information as known, along with a description of the service of the unit in which the veteran served, for each veteran. The book is further illustrated with drawings of Civil War scenes produced by artists contemporary to the war, 1861 to 1865. A paper copy of the book, along with all research work generated in the production of the book, will be held at the Wakeman Archival Research Center. The CD copy is available at the Wakeman Archival Research Center and any donation towards the CD will benefit Waterville Historical Society.
