There are several stones in the Antietam National Cemetery for men who were actually buried elsewhere.

Readers occasionally ask about this, and I can never find them when I want them, hence this list.  It will evolve as I learn more.

 Rank Name Unit Death Actual burial place
 Pvt Bridgeman J. Hollister 16th CT Inf  25 Sept 1862  Wassuc Cemetery, Glastonbury, CT
 Pvt Oliver Cromwell Case  8th CT Inf  17 Sept 1862  Simsbury Cemetery, Simsbury, CT
