Come, join us and others, as we journey through various cemeteries within Clearfield  County where we randomly search and locate grave sites of 'Continental Soldiers' of the

American Revolution (1775-1783),

and veterans from the War of 1812 (1812-1815).

The American Revolutionary War of 1775 to 1783, also known as the American War of Independence. It had begun as a war between the Kingdom of Great Britain and former 13 united British colonies under the North American continent. However, this war had ended in a global war between several European great powers.

The War of 1812 was fought between the United States and Great Britain and lasted from 1812 to 1815.

In the War of 1812, the United States took on the greatest naval power in the world, Great Britain, in a conflict that would have an immense impact on the young country’s future. Causes of the war included British attempts to restrict U.S. trade, the Royal Navy’s impressment of American seamen and America’s desire to expand its territory. The United States suffered many costly defeats at the hands of British, Canadian and Native American troops over the course of the War of 1812, including the capture and burning of the nation’s capital, Washington, D.C., in 1814.
