Larry Clemens - Researching deaths of Civil War soldiers and burials.   Many men enlisted or were drafted into the Northern and Southern armies during the Civil War.  Accounting for the deaths, locations of burials,and those missing was not a priority of the Army at the time.  As the war continued, there were attempts to address these matters and after the war, a "Missing Persons" Bureau was created.  Larry Clemens will focus on battle deaths, death by illness, and "missing" soldiers of the Civil War, and how the mysteries surrounding some of these soldiers were solved.
