PRINT THIS INFORMATION
There is a very nice GAR section at the entrance to Glendale Cemetery. While there is no monument, this is worth a stop to see a good number of CW veterans buried here. The cemetery also contains two CW cannons and the tombstone of Medal of Honor recipient William Campbell (at another location in cemetery). At the entrance near 48th and University, this section is on the left after passing markers for WWI veterans. Photos taken 11/4/08.
