GENESEO — The VFW plans to install a permanent plaque commemorating the Geneseo men who fought and died in the Civil War.
They are looking to get a plaque made naming all 35 men at the war memorial in Geneseo’s Village Park.
“The VFW is tracing the war history of the Village,” said Mayor Richard Hatheway. “It is important to look back to the 1800’s and the Geneseo men who fought.”
Among Geneseo’s Civil War dead is General James S. Wadsworth, son of James Wadsworth, who founded Geneseo with his brother, William.
There will be a Veterans Day Memorial Service held at the memorial on Saturday Nov. 11 at 11 a.m.
