MONTGOMERY COUNTY NY MILITARY INDEX PAGE
Our popular "Where the Boys Were" section outgrew its spot on our main page long ago.
A special feature of this section, the Military Roll of Honor. If your ancestor or relative was born, raised or lived in Montgomery County, NY, send us their name, town and the war they served in for inclusion on the Military Honor Roll. Of special interest are Herkimer/Montgomery veterans who moved on and served in other states.

During this time, as many as15-18,000 Union soldiers were held captive. Of these, 2,802 Union soldiers died; 2,300 of whom are buried as unknowns today. The Florence Stockade has not received the same notoriety as Andersonville, but the conditions were very much the same. Among the soldiers held at Florence were members of the 43rd NY Volunteer Infantry. This site is dedicated to both the memory of the prisoners and those who guarded them.
