10/26/2014 Hey everybody, it has been a long time since I have done anything here. September 22 2013 I became deathly ill with Legionnaires I spent 3 months in the hospital and rehab after 3 surgeries being paralyzed from the ankles down, and having my last rights twice I survived. I thank God and my loving family for pulling thru this. I can no longer go in to the cemeteries because of my condition I wear braces from the knees down to my feet and use crutches to walk. I have 100's of pages of research and documents I plan on writing a new book on the town's GAR post doings from around 1900 thru the disbandment in 1928 and a biography of Samuel Brown who the post was named after. He was a school teacher from Enfield who was killed at Antietam 9/17/1862

My name is Ted and welcome to my site, I have photographically documented all the Civil War graves here in town of Enfield Connecticut that I could locate. Captions are researched military records from a book assembled by the Connecticut State General Assembly in 1889 of all state veterans, pictures captions are update as needed so check back frequently for updates. All photo's are shot by me using a Canon F1N, everything is scanned at full resolution, so open them to original size for fine detail.
The 1860 census list Enfield population as 4996, we sent 420 men to war, less than half are buried in town.
As of 10/12/2009 I had submitted 178 soldiers undocumented graves buried here in town to the National Database, Sons of Union Veterans of the Civil War. I have also had the SUVCW correct 27 incorrect gravesites for various reasons such as wrong cemetery and addresses. When I started this project on June 23, 2009 there were 57 Civil War soldiers names in the database as of October 12, 2009 there is 213 names.
