Down the road from Madison Barracks is the historic cemetery that is home to veterans--many of them unknown soldiers--from the local War of 1812 battles and fallen soldiers from all of America's conflicts since then. Many local veterans still choose to be interred there.

i2i.jpg The cemetery is also the resting place of Brigadier General Zebulon Pike Jr., who died after his successful attack on York (Toronto), Ontario, along with General Jacob Brown. Pike also served in George Washington's Continental Army, and in the US Army after the revolution was won. He led explorations of the Mississippi, Arkansas and Red rivers and the Southwest United States, and unsuccessfully attempted to climb the Colorado mountain named after him: Pike's Peak.(1)
