Trimble County residents served in both the Union and Confederate armies during the
American Civil War. Many veterans are now buried at the I.O.O.F. Cemetery in Bedford.
For the month of April, library staff have marked the graves of those veterans with a special “Civil War 150” marker. More information about these men, including a map and full list of the veterans, is available at the library. If you know a Civil War veteran we missed, please let us know!
