Civil War Burials
in St. Patrick Cemetery
The Civil War presented the Irish living in Lowell an opportunity to show their patriotism and to be employed while many of the cotton mills shut down. A survey was made in the 1930s which recorded many of these entries. More recent research added more names, including religious Sisters, who served during the War. Almost 1200 Irish veterans are interred in St Patrick's. This does not include the great numbers who left Lowell after the war and were interred elsewhere.
