Legacy Projects > Revolutionary War Patriot Grave Recognition Series Revolutionary War Patriot Grave Recognition Series

This project’s goals are to recognize the Revolutionary War Veterans and to also pay homage to those of Carroll County whose participation in the fight for freedom and detachment from tyrannical British rule contributed greatly to national liberty. Another facet of this project is community action and cooperation between and among various local organizations and to engender more, as it were, unity in the community. The INSSAR maintains a program of systematically recognizing burial sites and documents the contributions of the soldiers
