Cemetery notes and/or description:
located on Archibald Street, just off state highway NY 22 in the village of Salem, New York.
It is a 2.6 acre area with over a thousand graves, at least 100 of which are those of Revolutionary War dead or veterans.
The cemetery was established prior to the war, but became known as a burial ground for casualties of the conflict when many were buried there, particularly after the nearby Battle of Saratoga, when a hundred bodies were reportedly put in one mass grave. More of the conflict's dead are buried here than in any other graveyard in Washington County, and possibly the state.
