The Clarksville Historical Society's War Memorial Committee is searching for
information on any Clarksville residents killed in wartime.

The city of Clarksville, IN -- the "Oldest Anglo-American Town in the Old
Northwest" -- was chartered in 1783 by Gen. George Rogers Clark.  According
to the Southern Indiana Convention and Tourism Bureau's website at
Clarksville Tourist Sites  General Clark, "in 1778 and 1779 led the campaign which captured the British forts of Kaskaskia,

Cahokia, and Vincennes. In recognition of their victory, the Virginia
Assembly in 1783 gave Clark and his troops a 150,000-acre land grant at the
Falls of the Ohio", 1,000 acres of which became the city of Clarksville.

It was at Clarksville that Meriwether Lewis and Gen. Clark's younger brother
William embarked on their famous Northwest Expedition.

As such an old community, Clarksville obviously will have a large number of
residents who died in the years following 1783, including (but not limited
to) the War of 1812, the Indian Wars, the Civil War, the Spanish-American,
WWI, WWII, the Korean War, the Vietnam War, the Gulf War, etc.
