Re: Civil War service unmentioned?

Pvt. Samuel Bryant is buried in Springfield, Ohio's Ferncliff Cemetery. His burial site is located in the GAR Soldier's Mound where there are 77 other USCT's buried in an "integrated" memorial to Springfield's Civil War veterans.

A quote from a recent Springfield News-Sun article on Ferncliff Cemetery, USCT's and the GAR Soldier's Mound
"(A separate survey done by students at Washington CH High School, found that of 116 black Civil War veterans they found in Ferncliff Cemetery, 77, or about two-thirds, were buried in the GAR Mound.)"

note: The article mentions Merritt Johnson, a USCT veteran of the CW who also served in the 117th U.S. Colored Infantry as did Samuel Bryant, is also buried in Ferncliff's GAR Mound.
