USCT Resting Place - Hillside Cemetery

Hillside Cemetery

Ypsilanti, Washtenaw County, Michigan

Of real interest is the fact that there was a tall GAR monument and about 25 Civil War soldiers buried around it. The surprise was that the 102nd USCT soldiers were buried side by side with other white troops from Michigan. I guess Ypsilanti was a liberal town back in those years. The soldiers already listed on your site for Hillside Cemtery were located in this location. The cemetery is rather large and it took me 13 hours to walk and record graves. Here are the troops I found.
