Hometowns and Places of Burial and Memorialization of the 8th Queen’s

About the Map

Over the last two years, Team Peirs member Lizzie Hobbs has been tracking the men of the 8th Queen’s down, gathering data from a variety of sources. This map takes a small piece of that research, focusing on the origins of the soldiers and the places of their final rest and eternal memory. Of the 1,166 currently known members of the battalion, our project has information on the hometowns of 501 men, and the places of burial or memorialization for 650.
