Located in Carrollton, Ohio, the McCook House is a memorial to Ohio’s famous “Fighting McCooks.” This historic house was the home of Major Daniel McCook, who, with his nine sons and six nephews, became known as the “Fighting McCooks” because of their participation in the armed services of their country prior to and especially during the Civil War.
Grafton was established in 1867 by Congressional legislation to offer a final resting place for the men who died during the Civil War. Burials were removed from other cemeteries to make Grafton the final resting place for 2,133 soldiers, including 664 unknown soldiers. Grafton is notably the site of the grave of the first casualty of land engagement of the Civil War, Pvt. T. Bailey Brown.
