Map of the foreign burial of American War Dead

Map of the foreign burial of American War Dead

Normandy, Flanders Field and other overseas cemeteries of the American Battle Monument Commission (ABMC) are well known. However, lesser-known burial sites of American war dead exist all over the world--in Australia and across the Pacific Rim, in Canada and Mexico, Libya and Spain, most of Europe and as far north as the Russian Arctic. This is an interactive map of American soldiers buried abroad since the American Revolution. The map was created by Chris Dickon author of “The Foreign burial of American War Dead” available at www.mcfarlandpub.com. This map is to know of them and for us to remember them on Memorial Day no matter where they are buried.
