The Illinois Society has undertaken a project to mark select Illinois graveyards where Revolutionary Patriots are buried. Although many of the individual graves are already marked, our hope is to place a cast-aluminum plaque at the entrance to the graveyard to allow visitors to honor the graves of the Patriots as well as to aid in protecting these cemeteries from being lost to development.
We are pleased to announce that we are in our fifth year of this extraordinary program.
Below is a list of cemeteries in Illinois and are the final resting places of one or more Revolutionary War Patriot(s) which ILSSAR has placed a marker telling the story of the Patriot buried there.
