I am also the past President of the Historical Society of the Town of Colonie (2012-2014), and a Trustee of Albany Cemetery Association with special interest in Civil War soldiers and sailors buried in Albany Rural Cemetery in Menands, NY, located in the township of Colonie. I enjoy Civil War history, particularly history local to Albany, with an emphasis on what local citizens did during the Civil War. I've compiled a list of over 1,000 Civil War soldiers & sailors interred in Albany Rural Cemetery, which includes 27 generals, 6 Medal of Honor recipients from the Civil War, and 3 Confederate soldiers. I also conduct Civil War tours of Albany Rural Cemetery for various size groups. In addition, I give several Power Point presentations to various organizations, such as: historical societies; Civil War Round Tables; genealogical societies; Boy Scout troops; Kiwanis and Rotary Clubs; and various other civic organizations. Great history lessons! Email me if you are interested.
