On a beautiful July day, high a top a hill at the SAMS Cemetery in Jasper County, research by members of the Iowa Military Heritage Society, combined with a little manual labor form volunteers, saw yet another previously unmarked Civil War veterans grave graced with a granite VA supplied stone.

Robert Gannon, A Vietnam veteran is the man behind the project and a transcript or audio version of an NPR story on the subject can be heard at

Plans are well underway for a very special occasion on September 24th, 2016 that the public is encouraged and invited to participate in.
