The American Revolutionary
War and Union County
           

The lists below is an ongoing process to include as far as we are able to determine all of the veterans of Union County that served in The American Revolutionary War. Besides those buried within the boundaries of Union County we will also list several that were buried in the nearby adjacent counties. This includes of course many of the graves that were moved by the Tennessee Valley Authority during the building of Norris Dam. Those cemeteries that are marked with an asterisk are not within the county borders.  Much more information is available than is presented here so feel free to send us your comments and or questions. We look forward to seeing your inquires on our message board.
