Vale Cemetery - Schenectady, NY

Vale Cemetery occupies a beautiful site a short distance from the City. It is handsomly laid out and contains many fine monuments. When the present contemplated improvements are completed it will form one of the most beautiful rural cemeteries of its size in this part of the State. Among the monuments of this cemetery is one "Sacred to the memory of 57 American soldiers who were buried at Schenectady during the Revolution." The monument was erected by the citizens of Schenectady in 1859."
