To commemorate the Civil War Sesquicentennial and honor the memories of our veterans, FCCPA has compiled a database of veterans buried or memorialized in our cemeteries.
Included are veterans in cemeteries in Fairfax County as well as Fairfax City and Falls Church City, which were part of Fairfax County during the Civil War and through half of the 20th century.
The database identifies 454 veterans. It is accurate to the best of our knowledge but is not considered complete. Rather, the database is a strong beginning that we hope to improve and expand with further research as well as corrections and additions from its users. To submit these, please contact FCCPA through this website and limit suggested additions to cemeteries in Fairfax County, Fairfax City and Falls Church City. We would appreciate source information and/or documentation for any additions or corrections.
FCCPA’s Civil War Honor Roll section currently profiles 25 of these veterans. Several more are mentioned in articles in the Current Projects section about the cemeteries where they are buried.
