Biographical or historical data
On 22 March 2002, the General Assembly of Virginia approved a measure (Virginia Code section 10.1-2211.1) to provide for the upkeep of Revolutionary War cemeteries and graves in the state. The Virginia Department of Historic Resources is responsible for the administration of this program and for the distribution of funds appropriated for its support. The Code provides that a small, per-grave stipend be appropriated to specifically identified organizations that provide for the care and maintenance of the graves of military veterans of the Revolutionary War. The funds may also be used for erecting and caring for markers, memorials, and monuments to the memory of these veterans. The Virginia Society of the Sons of the American Revolution has been appointed the administrative agent for the Department of Historic Resources to disburse the funds appropriated for the program. Funding did not become available until the 2005 General Assembly session.
