Greenvale Cemetery Tour

Tuesday June 8 at 7 p.m.

Join Civil War genealogist Vicki Profitt as she leads a tour through

Fairport's Greenvale Cemetery, located on East Church Street in the

Village of Fairport on Tuesday, June 8, 2010 at 7 p.m.

Discover a soldier who served under Colonel Robert Gould Shaw in

the famed 54th Massachusetts Volunteers, which was the subject of

the movie Glory. Meet a 16 year old drummer boy who enlisted in the

108th NY Infantry. Learn which Fairport veteran was a caretaker at

the cottage where President Ulysses S. Grant died.

These local soldiers and more will be illuminated in a one-hour walking tour of

Greenvale. We will meet at the entrance to the cemetery at 7 p.m.

Please wear comfortable shoes.

Vicki Profitt has researched the Civil War soldiers of Monroe County since 2008. Her Illuminated History blog

highlights the research process and illuminates the lives of the unsung Civil War heroes from our own community.
