Civil War Veterans Buried in the Baxter Springs, Kansas Cemetery, by historian and genealogist Earleene Spaulding is a book that has just been released.
From what started out as a collection of historical Civil War materials used to assist others in research, the soft cover book in large format contains 122 pages of photos, obituaries, cemetery records, a cemetery plot map, Heritage Center records and a complete index. Included in the commentary is the burial and reburial of Civil War soldiers slaughtered in the Baxter Springs Massacre that brought about the designation of a National Plot, not common to many cemeteries.
A journey begins with a single step. The more we know about our history, the more we know about our future--Earleene Spaulding
