Nevada Rock Art Geocaching Historical Markers

Historical Marker #79

Located at 10th and Angel Streets, in Reno, Nevada.

Civil War Plot

This plot was purchased in 1890 for $180 in gold coin by the General O.M. Mitchel Post No. 69, Grand Army of the Republic, to be used as a last resting place for their comrades-in-arms during the Civil War, 1861-1865.

They made it a place of beauty during the early 1900's.

Following years of neglect and outrageous vandalism, restoration was initiated in 1963 by the Daughters of Union Veterans who served in their own state and neighboring areas of the West from 1861 to 1866.

Notes on this marker:

This one takes awhile to find, especially if you've never been in the area before.
