I am staying in PrincetonPrinceton Cemetery has General G D Bayard, General David Hunter, General Joseph Karge, and a whole lot of other interesting folks.
what about Calvary Cemetery in Queens, NY where the Color Bearer of The Irish Brigade Peter Welsh is buried who was killed in the War. I'd rather visit him than a bunch of Generals. You had to have bigger you know whats to be up front with that big Green target then sitting on a horse in the rear!
Green-Wood Cemetery500 25th Street

Sixteen Union generals, including Henry Halleck, Henry Slocum, Abram Duryee, and Fitz-John Porter, and two Confederate generals are buried at The Green-Wood Cemetery. Several Civil War monuments, including the cast zinc Drummer Boy and New York City's Soldiers' Monument, as well as a Civil War Soldiers' Lot (where approximately 130 Union veterans are interred, including men who died at Shiloh, Antietam, and Gettysburg) dot the cemetery's rolling hills. Four thousand and six hundred grave sites of Civil War veterans have been located (including 75 Confederates), and 2,000 gravestones for those in unmarked graves are being installed.
Check out the Princeton Battlefield, just outside of town on Mercer Road. There are also historical markers showing where Washington marched from Trenton to Princeton. And some great hiking trails next to the Battlefield. My home town.I am mainly concerned with the ones around Princeton and Trenton as well as the Bronx and Brooklyn
